The Osteopathic Post-doctoral Training Institution (OPTI) at KCUMB is known as the Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences-College of Osteopathic Medicine Educational Consortium (KCUMB-COMEC). It is a consortium formed through affiliation between KCUMB and freestanding hospitals and health-care institutions providing medical education to osteopathic medical students, interns and residents.
Affiliation with KCUMB-COMEC is renewed through participation agreements executed between each hospital or health-care institution and KCUMB.
Learn more about the mission and purpose of KCUMB-COMEC, as well as information about the OPTI board members.
Freestanding hospitals and health-care institutions providing medical education to osteopathic medical students, interns and residents are invited to join the Educational Consortium as participating members.
Health-care institutions, hospitals or other clinical facilities ineligible to apply as participating members are invited to apply to become associate members. Associate members are expected to represent their hospital/institution by participating on the Board of Directors, the Academic Steering Committee and various other committees.
Health-care institutions, hospitals or other clinical facilities ineligible to apply to become participating or associate members are invited to apply to become affiliate members. Affiliated members are invited to participate in OPTI-related functions, encouraged to provide educational opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students, and are included in the communications network of the OPTI.
