Wilson Medical Center is proud to announce that Trent Edwards, a third-year University of Kansas School of Medicine student, has joined us on campus for an eight-week clerkship under the guidance of our esteemed doctors. Dr. Miranda McKellar will act as the lead preceptor. Dr. Brad Barrett and Dr. Bert Chronister will also provide guidance from their vast experience and knowledge in the medical field.

“The addition of this student to our team is a great opportunity for Wilson Medical Center to further our commitment to education and excellence in patient care,” said Tom Hood, CEO. “We believe that by providing students with hands-on experience, we can help develop the next generation of medical professionals who will carry on our mission of compassionate, high-quality healthcare.”

Rural healthcare is an essential component of any healthcare system, and it is crucial to support it to ensure that everyone has access to high-quality healthcare, regardless of where they live. Programs like the one offered by Wilson Medical Center are excellent ways to address the challenges facing rural healthcare providers and to support the next generation of medical professionals. By investing in education and training, we can help ensure that rural communities have access to the healthcare they need and deserve.

We are excited to welcome Trent to our community and look forward to seeing the positive impact he will have on our patients and staff. At Wilson Medical Center, we are committed to fostering an environment of learning, growth, and innovation, and we are proud to be a part of shaping the future of medicine.
