School Overview

School Info

Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences College of Osteopathic Medicine has educated physicians, scientists and health-care leaders in Kansas City for almost 90 years. The College was founded as Kansas City College of Osteopathy and Surgery May 16, 1916, in an office building in downtown Kansas City, Mo. George G. Conley, D.O., was the school`s first president. In January of the next year, the College graduated its first student, Mamie Johnston, a transfer student. More than 7,000 physicians have graduated from KCUMB-COM since its founding.

Curriculum

The curriculum at KCU's College of Osteopathic Medicine (COM) consists of four years of structured training leading to the doctor of osteopathic medicine degree. Unlike traditional undergraduate and graduate institutions where students register for individual courses, the COM curriculum is built on continuum blocks that students take as cohorts (with the exception of course electives). The first two years of the curriculum are classroom oriented with clinical presentation enhancements, covering the foundations of basic and clinical medical sciences. During the third and fourth years of study, students receive advanced clinical training through clerkships in a wide variety of medical settings, both in Kansas City and throughout the United States.

Facilities

The Conte Anatomy Lab incorporates 21st-century technology into a traditional hands-on anatomy laboratory with 36 cadaver tanks. Faculty lecturers use an overhead camera system with multiple viewing screens to give each student an up-close look at procedures. The Strickland Educational Pavilion also houses the 250-seat Ricci Auditorium, a physiology lab, an osteopathic principles and practices lab, an extensive medical library, a well-equipped sports medicine facility, office space for basic and clinical sciences faculty and the campus cafeteria. The Dybedal Center for Biosciences Research, a 45,000-square-foot basic and clinical science research center will be the first new research facility to be completed by a private academic institution in Kansas City. The Dybedal Center includes basic-sciences laboratories housing National Institutes of Health-funded research, as well as the only adult academic clinical research center in metropolitan Kansas City, office space for the University's information technology department, and Score 1 for Health, a University program in which KCUMB faculty and students provide free health screenings for more than 13,000 urban-core elementary students each year. In addition to the Strickland Education Pavilion and the Dybedal Center for Biosciences Research, the Mary L. Butterworth, D.O., Alumni Center and a maintenance facility have been added.

I also love the cafeteria food. Certain professors (Dr. Johnston & Friedlander) are so awesome intelligent that it blows your mind. Some of our professors actually write the questions for the boards.

"Good place to get a strong education and do well on both the COMLEX and USMLE. Most students at KCUMB to into alliopathic residencies but many also go in to very competitive osteopathic residencies." | Report Response

"I love how the unofficial dorms (Century Towers) is right across from the school. The current president is working really hard to maintain our tuition or decrease the tuition." | Report Response

"The systems based curriculum makes understanding the information presented a little more manageable (which in med school is saying a lot). I can't imagine doing it any other way. The teachers are also here for the students and you can tell they actually care about teaching! The school also claims to be very traditional as far as a dress code and mandatory class attendance, but in reality they don't enforce any of it except no jeans. It makes life much easier and i know plenty of kids who don't go to class at all." | Report Response

About the LizzyM Score

LizzyM, SDN Moderator and medical school admissions committee member, is the inventor of the LizzyM Score. The score allows you to see if you are a competitive applicant at a given school. If your LizzyM Score is far below or above the average, you may not be a good fit. If your score is far below, your application may be screened out due to numerical cutoffs. If it is far above, the school may assume they are your “safety” school and that you won’t attend if they offer an acceptance. This score should be used only as a guide to help you select schools and is not a guarantee of acceptance at any school. If you use this as your sole criteria to select medical schools to apply to, you don’t deserve to get in anyway.
