Nephrologists’ gift supports KU internal medicine residency they know well
By Brian Whepley | KU School of Medicine-Wichita
Nine of Wichita Nephrology Group’s 11 doctors did internal medicine residencies through KU School of Medicine-Wichita, and five did advanced training in nephrology with KU as well.
Add in that everyone in the practice serves as volunteer clinical faculty in Wichita, and it’s clear the crimson and the blue ties run deep among Wichita’s largest group of kidney specialists.
Recently, the medical group made a five-year, $25,000 pledge to the KU School of Medicine-Wichita Internal Medicine residency program. Jany Moussa, M.D., said the gift was not only a way to support the program and its residents but also the leadership of William Salyers, M.D., who became chair of internal medicine last year and continues in his previous role of residency director as well.
