Contact Dr. Kennedy if interested in this
option
What I liked most…

“The interaction time with my attending. I
was encouraged and allowed to function as a
4th year intern and I learned so much by
being first on call! Dr. __ was patient with me
and listened to all my suggestions and
worked through why each one was
appropriate/inappropriate. I got lots of hands
on in OR and clinic and feel I learned a lot
about perioperative management. This
rotation truly prepared me for 4th year. So I
was able to learn from many angles.”
How it differs from KU Med…

“Being able to experience
small town medicine which
is so much different than
medicine at KU Med and
because I hope to practice in
a small town someday this is
important to me. One-onone teaching from Dr. ___
which is much better than
the very limited contact we
have with faculty at KU Med.
The friendliness of patients
and staff in Chanute!”
Fantastic Teaching…


“The Experience overall was positive—much more so than I
had anticipated. Dr. _____ is a fantastic teacher. The
experience that I have had here is the way that medical school
SHOULD BE. I had the perfect amount of exposure to
everything. The people here are extremely helpful and
pleasant to be around. The month went by too quickly and if I
could I would stay another month. Each day Dr. _____would
take about 30 minutes to teach me something-these were some
of the best sessions of learning I have had in 3 years. I would
come here again and I highly recommend this to anyone!”
“I felt like an important member of the healthcare team. The
patients were great. My preceptor gave me a lot of
independence yet was very available. This was by far the best
month of my training.”
Amazing Experience…


“What an amazing experience! It would be impossible to rank
order the single best thing. Perhaps the caring physicians (who
double as great teachers), perhaps the accommodating staff,
perhaps the nurses and CRNAs—who made sure to involve us
in everything. We were welcomed, encouraged to be involved,
encouraged to take responsibility, and allowed to develop new
skills.”
“I loved the one-on-one attention. Every learning experience
was mine for the taking; no other students to vie for it. I
appreciated Dr. ______’s willingness to accept me into her
family and her practice. I was made to feel very welcome. Dr.
______ always looked for good learning opportunities for me.
Her staff was also very accommodating.”
