Undergraduate Fellowships

  • Student Program-Based Fellowships

    KCU has two programs that award fellowships to students who have achieved outstanding performance during training.
    These year-long programs are in Anatomy and Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine. Selection is competitive and Fellows are required to enhance their own personal development through participation in the teaching program as well as in individualized projects. The Fellows function as teaching assistants for labs, aid in the management of the labs, participate in some didactics, facilitate small group sessions, lead review sessions, and serve as a general resource for students in much the same way faculty does.

    Fellowship in Clinical Anatomy
    The Department of Anatomy selects three post-second- or post-third-year medical students for 11-month fellowships. Fellows expand their anatomy training by assisting in teaching and lab management as well as completing a research project for publication.

    Fellowship in Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine
    The Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine Fellowship gives interested students the opportunity to practice and perfect their skills while working with experienced Osteopathic physicians. The OMM Fellowship is a twelve-month training program that takes place ideally between the student's third and fourth year clinical clerkship assignments.
