Kansas Recruitment Center brings new health care provider to Emporia, Kan.

Alana Fearey, DO, Internal Medicine Physician, will join the team at the Medical Arts Clinic in Emporia, Kan., the summer of 2011. 

Fearey has known for many years that a career as a physician was the lifestyle that she wanted to pursue.  She graduated from the Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences in May 2008 as an osteopathic physician and will complete the Internal Medicine Residency Program at the University of Kansas School of Medicine – Wichita in June of 2011.

“I’m excited to begin practicing in Emporia as I’ve always known that I want to help the underserved communities. At the Medical Arts Clinic, I know that I am joining a team of physicians with outstanding reputations in quality health care,” Fearey stated. 

According to Kent Palmberg, MD, Fearey is a wonderful fit for the Medical Arts Clinic. “We needed a traditional internist to join our team and she was willing to come to a practice that required she do both office-based and hospital medicine. That’s what she wanted as well.” 

The Kansas Recruitment Center (KRC) seeks to enhance the quality and quantity of health care professionals in rural Kansas by helping health care providers, like Dr. Fearey, find a home practice in Kansas. For rural organizations, the KRC provides job opportunity postings and placement assistance. For health care professionals, the KRC serves as a career service center by matching candidates with openings in the state.
