The Rapid City campus of the University of South Dakota Sanford School of Medicine has moved downtown to 520 Kansas City Street from its previous location in the southern part of town.
“This new campus is centrally located in Rapid City and is nicely positioned to support the medical education community while also engaging with the Rapid City community at large,” says Dr. Matt Simmons, Dean of the Rapid City campus of USD’s medical school[AC1] .
Simmons says USD has prepared and educated nearly 200 of the
physicians either practicing or retired in the Rapid City area. The school’s
faculty includes about 260 Rapid City-area physicians serving as teachers to
medical students, including 59 physicians who serve as core faculty.
“The impact of the medical school in Rapid City and the Black Hills is profound,” says Dr. Simmons. “Our new campus will allow us to better serve our students, Rapid City and western South Dakota.”
