“This facility will be transformative for how we’ll be able to educate and train health profession students for the future along the full breadth of the pipeline – from entry level heath care workers, to medical laboratory scientists, to nurses and PAs, to pharmacists and physicians.”

The Impact

Creating a talent pipeline:

The health care industry is one of the largest and fastest-growing sectors in the United States. This collaborative campus will draw students, educators, researchers, clinicians and industry partners from across the country to support the talent pipeline in Wichita and all of Kansas.

Fueling research and innovation:

The strategic location of the Wichita Biomedical Campus will bring about a unique opportunity for
innovation to meet community needs. Improved efficiencies, collaboration and support for interprofessional health care learning will help expand research and innovation.

Accelerating economic prosperity:

With an estimated 3,000 students and 200 faculty and staff expected on campus, the influx of people in downtown Wichita will significantly affect the economic footprint of retail, food services and housing throughout the community.

Enhancing health care education:

The high-tech design of the campus will allow programs to take advantage of the digitalization of
health care and health care education, while preparing to meet future public health demands, opportunities and threats.
