Broad-Spectrum Family Medicine


The mission of the University of Kansas School of Medicine - Wichita Family Medicine Residency Program at Via Christi is to teach comprehensive family medicine to residents of character who are called to serve the community with an emphasis on patient-centered care.

Family Medicine is one of medicine’s most challenging and progressive specialties. Our program offers an unparalleled opportunity to learn — if you are up to the challenge.

Via Christi Family Medicine strives to meet the challenges of the changing health care environment through an unopposed, community-based residency program serviced only by our Family Medicine residents.

Our program serves metropolitan Wichita and rural Kansas (a population of about 500,000), for a training base of patients sufficient to help you develop the competence, confidence and comfort to practice broad-based family medicine anywhere in the world (urban, suburban, rural, or international).

From day one, our residents are treated as capable physicians, and are given the freedom and responsibility to care for patients at their comfort level from admission to discharge.

We will prepare you for the type of practice you desire in family medicine.

  • You determine your trajectory.
  • You choose your interests.
  • You choose the scope of your future practice.

Via Christi Family Medicine Residency offers a broad training opportunity, to prepare you to practice at whatever level that you desire for your future practice.
