Like KU School of Medicine–Wichita on Facebook

Wednesday, June 15, marked the launch of the KU School of Medicine–Wichita Facebook page! The page will keep everyone in the know about the exciting news taking place on the Wichita Campus and within our community. However, we promise not to be a “Facebook Minutiaest”.
Oh, the places he’ll go
With the launch of Facebook, there will be a new “Doc” on campus, and he will be photographed everywhere students, residents, and faculty members can be found. His name is Flat JayDoc and, even
though he is flat, he will fit right into experiencing the intriguing and rewarding things those on the Wichita Campus get to do. Flat JayDoc is similar to the Flat Stanley project for children, which  ncourages students to make connections with other schools through photos and letters. On our campus, students, residents, and faculty members will host Flat JayDoc for up to five days and assist him (after all, when you are flat, you have issues with manipulation) with getting his photos on the KU School of Medicine–Wichita Facebook page. He will be passed on to other hosts for his adventures to continue and his photos will be posted on the KU School of Medicine–Wichita Facebook page.

“Likes” for Wichita
First-Years The new 1styear medical students aren’t coming with a skeleton in the closet, but they will get one as soon as we get 1,000 “Likes”! To welcome the 1st-year class, the 4-Wichita Advancement Board will donate up to $1,000 to purchase a skeleton and a protective cabinet, a bonus and exciting instructional aid for the 1st-year students to enhance their Wichita experience. For every person who “Likes” our page, the board will donate $1 toward the purchase. We’re hoping to welcome the skeleton by Halloween. Take a minute to show your support for the 1st-year students on the Wichita Campus by simply “Like”-ing our page and then spreading the word.
