Health Sciences Campus

Our Health Sciences Campus includes the Schools of Medicine, Dentistry, Pharmacy and Nursing and Health Studies, which are located in an area known as Hospital Hill. This UMKC Campus formed a partnership with area institutions like Truman Medical Centers, Children’s Mercy and the Kansas City, Missouri Health Department to form the UMKC Health Sciences District, a collaboration of university and public entities to address health issues in our region.

This partnership and proximity to other health-care organizations makes our students uniquely positioned to get some of the best jobs and internships Kansas City has to offer.
