Our Team

For over the last thirty years, Smoky Hill Family Medicine Residency Program has produced dedicated, well-trained family physicians serving rural Kansas communities. The state of Kansas established Smoky Hill by legislative mandate in 1977 for this express purpose and since that time we have placed 94% of our graduates in rural communities.
