ICOM Founding Dean to Lead New Medical School at KHSC

June 10, 2019

Kansas Health Science Center (KHSC), a nonprofit institution based in Wichita, KS, recently announced its new Board of Trustees and executive leadership team, with ICOM Founding Dean Robert Hasty, DO, as its new Founding Dean and Chief Academic Officer.

KHSC’s opening will mark the first new medical school for Kansas in more than a hundred years, with the goal of addressing the need for more physicians throughout the state.

“In a state that ranks fortieth in terms of physicians per capita, a new medical school can help improve access,” Dr. Hasty said. “There’s a growing need for doctors, not only in Kansas but across the country. KHSC is ready and eager to meet that challenge to help the community.”

Dr. Hasty is board certified in internal medicine and is a fellow of the American College of Osteopathic Internists as well as the American College of Physicians. Prior to his time at ICOM, Dr. Hasty served as Associate Dean of Campbell University’s School of Osteopathic Medicine, where he worked to secure 383 new residency positions in the region.
