Global Medicine (KCU-Kansas City and Joplin)

The Global Medicine Honors Track is an elective honors track for students who have a strong desire to serve in an international capacity. This track is available on both locations: Kansas City and Joplin. This track provides exposure and clinical education surrounding multiple aspects of global medicine. It is designed to span three years of formal osteopathic education, which will culminate with clinical international medical education experiences. Students will pursue additional hours of medical education, which include the principles and goals of global health, the burden of disease in both developing and already developed countries, comparative health systems, global ethics, case studies, and other selected topics in global medicine. Acceptance to the global medicine track involves an application process that occurs during the second semester of the first year. Students must be capable of handling the extra workload and participate in all activities. Approximately 12 students from Kansas City and eight students from Joplin will be selected for each class. Grading is pass/fail.

To remain eligible for the track, students must be in good standing.  A student will be administratively withdrawn from the honors track for any of the following reasons:

  • Course failure
  • Academic probation status
