In addition to the University of Kansas Hospital, residents in the Department of Medicine are provided clinical training at the Kansas City Veterans Affairs Medical Center and the Dwight D. Eisenhower Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Leavenworth.
The University of Kansas Hospital is the major educational institution for the University of Kansas School of Medicine and is a 606-bed tertiary care medical center with a full complement of supporting clinical departments and ancillary services.

Graduate Medical Education training programs are offered in all clinical departments at the medical center. Each year approximately 400 physicians are in graduate training with over 100 in the Department of Medicine. The University of Kansas Hospital participates in the National Residency Match Program.
Clinical experience at KU Med is the cornerstone of our residency training program because of the opportunities for residents to learn under the mentorship of both clinical investigators and medical educators, while caring for a patient population which includes tertiary referrals from physicians throughout the region, as well as local, culturally diverse primary care population.
