Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences
Who is KCU?
Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences (KCU) is one of the nation’s founding colleges of osteopathic medicine. We welcomed our first students in 1916, and we’ve been on the forefront of innovation in health sciences ever since. Today, KCU is constantly creating new programs to meet the needs of patients, and we’re continually renewing our commitment to research and our communities through partnerships and outreach. In recent years, these efforts and more came together in the historic opening of our second campus location in Joplin – the first new medical school in Missouri in nearly 50 years and the announcement of a new College of Dental Medicine to open in 2022.
