Homecoming

  • Sept. 17-19 on the KCU Campus

    Reminisce with former classmates and friends, participate in continuing medical education (CME) courses, enjoy some Kansas City-style barbecue, tour the beautiful campus and soak in all the changes that have taken place over the years.

    Speaking of CME, did we mention that KCU now offers our alumni free CME credits for life during Homecoming celebrations? Yes, free! Participate in the 15th annual Update in Medicine during Homecoming 2015 and all CME courses will be free to KCU alumni. Pay only for your meals. 

    Register now. CME seating is limited, and registration discounts are available to those who register by Aug. 26.
