Community tries to recruit more primary care providers

The number of new doctors depends on the number of available residency slots. If there are not enough qualified American new MDs, foreign MDs will fill the slots. Most you you have probably been to well qualified and trained foreign doctors. When programs are cut, like KU Med has been for the last 7-8 years, the number of available residency slots in the state declines. Residents often stay in the region where they trained, so this is critical. You should also be aware that half of MD grads are women now, and many of them are opting for part time (40 hours/week) work. Full time work in medicine is often 80 hours/week these days, which is not usually possible if women want to raise a family.

Editorial: Tenured talent

The annual reviews are useful, but it's probably not necessary for the chair to meet personally with faculty members whose reviews are satisfactory.

Decisions on KU budget cuts now in hands of deans, other leaders

If there are no science jobs in Kansas, the students would have gone to other states anyway. Better to leave after high school.

Decisions on KU budget cuts now in hands of deans, other leaders

What the legislature needs to realize is that the 31 residency slots lost at KUMC will most likely mean 31 KUMC grads who won't match and won't end up practicing in Kansas.

Amid budget cuts to higher education, KU gets funding for adult stem cell center

They will just put a plaque on the door of an existing lab, give that faculty member a few bucks, and use the rest for administration.

Budget advances with 'devastating' cuts to KU

KUMC accreditation site visits are coming up. LCME will be looking for state support, plans for a new teaching building with a construction start date, adequate support staff in Wichita and Salina, and a whole laundry list of expensive items. After so many cuts for so many years, it seems likely that something will be missing.
