Fiscal Year 2015 marked the beginning of KCU’s 99th year educating physicians. During the past decade, we also began educating researchers, scientists and bioethicists who play a pivotal role in addressing future health care challenges – from discovering new treatments, to determining how we ethically navigate the complex health care delivery system and improve treatment options for everyone.

As we look ahead to celebrating our 100th anniversary in 2016, we also take time to reflect on the past twelve months. During this time, we have advanced our mission of “improving the well-being of the communities we serve” through a number of initiatives across the University in support of our five-year strategic goals. As a result, we have begun what is, perhaps, the most dramatic institutional transformation in the University’s history. The following Annual Report details some of the key events that characterized Fiscal Year 2015 and set the stage for continued growth and development of KCU well into the future.
