Kansas Health Science Center EST. 2018

Kansas Health Science Center is a nonprofit organization committed to training well-prepared physicians and health care leaders who will positively contribute to the overall well-being of our communities. With the goal of opening the proposed Kansas Health Science Center – Kansas College of Osteopathic Medicine (KHSC-KansasCOM) in 2022, KHSC strives to positively impact the health landscape through directly addressing the disparity in access to health care.

The Kansas Health Science Center (KHSC) campus will honor the rich history of Wichita while advancing a new chapter for the medical community. Currently under construction, the building that will house KHSC once served as the home to Innes Department Store, Macy’s, and more recently the State Office Building. A complete overhaul of the space is underway to transform 116,000 square feet of the iconic building at 217 N. Douglas in the heart of downtown Wichita specifically for KHSC. Nearing completion, the campus features clean inspirational design, innovative state-of-the-art technology and learning spaces, an osteopathic skills training center, simulation center, standardized patient teaching rooms, large lecture halls, small group study rooms, a virtual anatomy lab, and much more.

Our vision is to build the medical school of the future and develop a training hub for future physicians. Together, we can establish Wichita and the surrounding communities as a go-to destination for those working in the medical field while stimulating immense social and economic development in the region.
