Wichita medical school preparing for expansion

Veterans Health Care Kansas

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — The University of Kansas School of Medicine in Wichita is assessing its facilities as it develops plans for a future expansion.

The university hired an architecture and design firm from Kansas City to do the assessment. School officials will use that report to estimate costs of the expansion before asking the Kansas Legislature for additional funding.

Dean Garold Minns says he hopes to have the information ready by the September.

The Wichita Eagle reports the expansion plans are part of goal to eventually have all 80 students spend all four years of their education on the Wichita campus.

Currently, some of the students complete the first half of their medical training in Kansas City.
