Wichita State University plans to join forces with the University of Kansas schools of Medicine and Pharmacy to build another medical education center in the city.
The WSU/KU Healthcare Sciences Educational Center will centralize health care programs offered by WSU, WSU Tech and KU’s schools of medicine and pharmacy in Wichita, reports The Wichita Eagle.
The center, which is a combined effort among Wichita State, WSU Tech, the University of Kansas School of Medicine-Wichita, and the KU School of Pharmacy in Wichita, is in the early design stages. Officials are uncertain how much the center will cost, where it will be built or what the timeline for construction will be.
The Kansas Health Science Center - Kansas College of Osteopathic Medicine, which is set to be part of pharmacist-turned-developer Sudha Tokala’s four-building education complex in downtown Wichita, will welcome its first class of students next August.
