Kansas City

Kansas City Skyline at night

Kansas City is a large metropolitan area of > 2 Million (across the two-state area) It offers many big-city amenities and experiences, yet still manages to keep a small-town feel. It’s not uncommon for our residents to own a home with a yard but still benefit from training at a busy trauma center at an urban hospital. Our primary training site, Truman Medical Center, is located in the heart of the city, surrounded by multiple popular entertainment districts. Residents live all over the metropolitan area as there are many affordable options including: downtown condos, mid-town apartments, or suburban homes.

We are home to three professional sports teams, including the 2020 Super Bowl champions, The Kansas City Chiefs! KC is also looking forward to hosting the 2023 NFL Draft! KC is well-known for really great barbecue; we also have a vibrant restaurant scene including multiple James Beard Award winning Chefs. Every fall, KC hosts the largest barbecue contest and celebration in the world.

For those desiring a more low-key Midwest lifestyle, just a 20-minute drive in nearly any direction will get you there. The KC metro area is home to some of the best school districts in the nation. No matter your interest – shopping, dining, music, art, sports, boating, camping, or even the rodeo – our city has much to offer. But, don’t just take our word for it; four KC area cities were recently ranked among the best to live in the US. National Geographic also named Kansas City as a top destination for 2019. Many of our graduates find that they like KC so much they stay and work here. Already planning to move here? Click here for things you must know before you move the KC or here to plan a visit.
