Our residents will spend their first year in Kansas City, training in highly complex and acute patients at the urban academic medical center. For their second and third years, residents will train in Pittsburg, Kansas – a two-hour drive due south of Kansas City.
The main residency site is the FQHC of CHC-SEK, which brings all the resources needed for this underserved, rural community under one roof. Residents will also train at Pittsburg’s Ascension Via Christi Hospital to learn care for the acute patient in a rural setting.
PGY1 residents benefit from the depth and breadth of our program, its faculty, and training sites. PGY2 and PGY3 residents benefit from training in a truly rural setting of a well-established FQHC at CHC/SEK, where they will have access to a multidisciplinary team.
We believe this is a truly unique program for future family medicine physicians planning to practice in rural areas, while offering the benefits of an urban academic center and the intimacy of the rural setting that many enjoy.
