KCU Joplin Campus Continues to Gain Momentum

Progress continues on several fronts with the development of KCU's new osteopathic medical school in Joplin, Mo.
  • Design work will last through the end of the year on the former, temporary Mercy Hospital facility, which was donated to serve as the future home of KCU's Joplin campus. Renovation work is scheduled to begin in November or December of this year.
  • Recruitment of the medical school's faculty and dean has begun, as well as the development of clinical training opportunities and novel GME training in cooperation with Mercy, Freeman and other regional hospitals.
Stay tuned for more updates as we continue making strides on what will be the first new medical school in Missouri in nearly 50 years!
