Affiliates & Resources

If you are exploring educational opportunities, or have made a decision to do your residency at one of our affiliate programs, you will be joining a dynamic educational consortium. KCU-GME relies on our valued partnerships with our training sites and teaching faculty as we strive to provide high-quality graduate medical education to our trainees. 


We invite freestanding hospitals and health care institutions providing medical education to medical students, interns and residents to join KCU-GME Consortium.

The conditions of membership for affiliate members in the KCU-GME Consortium are:

  • Acknowledgement of KCU-GME Consortium requirements by contributing to the consortium's AOA annual report and/or ACGME annual institutional review
  • Bylaws in place which note equivalence of specialty certification by the American Board of Medical Specialties for the purpose of obtaining hospital privileges
  • Notification to the consortium of any subsequent, substantive program change(s) made, accompanied by follow-up notification to the appropriate Specialty College or ACGME RC


Physicians must continually focus on professional development and furthering their understanding the scientific advances in medicine. A primary goal of KCU-GME Consortium is to promote and support the scholarly efforts of our affiliates.

As an affiliate, you are provided with several resources.
