Kansas City University Inspires Future Medical Professionals


Over 60 Kansas City Public Schools students experienced a variety of medical fields and simulations during the annual “Med Student for a Day” program at the Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences on Thursday, Feb. 8.

KCPS high school students had the opportunity to engage in four different hands-on medical workshops, including:

  • Human patient simulator experience (computerized medical mannequins)
  • Anatomy workshop (learning the organs of a real human body)
  • Osteopathic Medical Manipulation (a special procedure that can help alleviate pain)
  • A hands-on clinical tools session

All workshops were led by students from the KCU College of Medicine with the goal of inspiring a new generation of medical professionals. Since 2011, KCU has held the event every year for KCPS students.
