Fifty-nine KU School of Medicine-Wichita medical students learned where they will attend residency programs earlier this week, according to a news release.

Residency programs are additional training in specialized areas after medical students have completed four years of school for a medical doctorate.

Of the 59 students, 26 will remain with programs in Kansas through the Wichita Center for Graduate Education.

Thirty-three students who will have residency training in primary care, which includes family medicine, internal medicine and pediatrics.

In a study released last year by George Washington University and the Robert Graham Center for Policy Studies in Family Medicine and Primary Care, the Wichita campus ranked sixth in the country for producing primary care doctors by percentage of students.

Twelve students will pursue residencies in surgery.

There are currently 62 medical students in their fourth year at the Wichita campus. Students who did not yet match with a residency program have taken a break from school or are finishing rotations over the summer, said a university spokeswoman.

A complete list of the medical students and where they matched can be found online.
