Gray-Little praises plans for KU medical school in Salina

May 13, 2011


— University of Kansas Chancellor says students at the university's new medical school in Salina will be delighted with their school.

Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little toured the ongoing renovations for the new school of medicine in Salina on Thursday, and said she was impressed.

The three-story building at the Salina Regional Health Center will be renovated to become a four-year medical school.

The Salina Journal reports that the school is scheduled to open at the end of July with a class of eight students. Plans are to increase to 32 students by the fourth year.

Dr. William Cathcart-Rake, director of the Salina school, says the school will fill a need in rural Kansas, which is severely underserved.

Gray-Little said 95 to 100 Kansas counties are understaffed with doctors, especially in rural areas.

This should be the beginning of community colleges in towns throughout Kansas, including basic medical care taught in many different schools, at minimal cost. . I am very proud of the opening of a medical school in Salina! Lawrence

Raise tuition!

Gray-Little should be indicted for fraud for selling a Liberal Arts degree for $50,000+.
