Considered one of the most beautiful in the nation, KU's central campus occupies 1,000 acres on and around historic Mount Oread in Lawrence, a community of about 90,000 in the forested hills of eastern Kansas. Ten of KU's 13 schools are based here, as are internationally recognized research centers and laboratories.
This nationally recognized biomedical research center offers educational programs through its schools of Health Professions, Medicine, and Nursing. These academic units operate collaboratively with the University of Kansas Hospital, which provides opportunities for clinical experience and residency positions.
The School of Medicine-Wichita is the state center for community-oriented medical education. In partnership with Kansas communities, it educates students, residents, and physicians through scholarship, patient care, services, and research to improve the health of Kansans.
The School of Pharmacy-Wichita, housed in a new addition to the medical school, provides exceptional training in the pharmaceutical sciences. Faculty in pharmacy practice and basic science provide a firm foundation, and students also study alongside their Lawrence campus counterparts via high-definition video conferencing and two-way classrooms.
Designed to address the critical shortage of rural physicians in the state, this program is ideal for self-motivated students, independent learners who work with a small group of peers and who have a strong desire to practice primary-care medicine in rural Kansas. It is housed primarily in space provided by the Salina Regional Health Center.
Established in 1993, the KU Edwards Campus provides KU's high-quality education, research, and public service to greater Kansas City. Through its graduate and undergraduate degree-completion programs, the Edwards Campus provides adult learners the necessary tools to further their careers.
