The KCSWCS office will be closed December 13 though December 17, December 24, and December 31. Happy Holidays!

Kansas City Southwest Clinical Society (KCSWCS), founded in 1923, is thought to be one of the oldest postgraduate medical education organizations west of the Mississippi. We began when there were no medical schools in Kansas City. Today, our activities are devoted entirely to continuing medical education. We are completely independent and have no affiliation with any area medical schools or hospitals. Our members are physicians, nurse practitioners and physician assistants from different specialties, practice settings and medical affiliations, primarily from the Midwest.

Our Mission

KCSWCS encourages the incorporation and utilization of medical research and evidence-based medicine in daily patient care by encouraging physicians and other health care providers to share their knowledge, expertise and experience through continuing medical education activities both directly and jointly sponsored.

Our History

With no medical schools in the city, the founding physicians took on the task of developing an organization that could provide postgraduate education to physicians. They wanted to promote, encourage and develop the educational advantages of the clinical material of Kansas City and to hold an annual clinical conference that would demonstrate and emphasize the progress of medicine.
