Careers for Veterans

We are looking for veterans to join our elite team. At The University of Kansas Health System, we value  employees with strong leadership, teamwork, critical thinking and dedication – some of the qualities you demonstrated in your military service. We have multiple opportunities in our clinical, nonclinical, support and ancillary services settings.

Career transition

Planning for the next stage following a military career can be difficult. To help with the transition to a civilian career, we actively recruit veterans from area bases and installations, including Fort Leavenworth, Whiteman Air Force Base, Fort Riley and the National Guard.

Your service gave you valuable skills and experience. Put them to work at the region's best health system for the benefit of patients, families and communities.

I have found that veterans have a strong work ethic and an ability to adapt quickly to change. They manage stress effectively, care for their teammates, are highly professional and have an excellent perspective on what genuinely matters to them. – Renee Walters

Why choose us 

At The University of Kansas Health System, we understand the value that veterans can bring to the civilian workforce. Lee Norman, MD, our former chief medical officer, is an intelligence officer in the Kansas Army National Guard. He also served 16 years in the U.S. Air Force – 8 years on active duty and 8 years as a reservist – where he was aerospace-medicine-trained and served as a flight surgeon, family physician and combat medicine instructor.

Additionally, each year we work with the Kansas Air National Guard's 190th Medical Group for 2 weeks during summer training. This provides a hands-on experience in a hospital environment for the group to use in the field.
