“The 52% increase in medical school enrollment since 2002 is a promising response to the looming physician shortage we know is coming in the next decade. This growth has also revealed a need for additional academic faculty to teach these students. This current moment also calls for a more diverse faculty population who can help students provide optimal care to the diverse patients they will see in clinical practice. Our goal at Kansas Health Science Center is to promote the next generation of academic physicians that will serve the ever-changing needs of future patients.”

JOEL DICKERMAN, DO, Dean and Chief Academic Officer
