The first class at the University of Kansas Medical School in Salina has the opportunity to work in a modern, state-of-the-art anatomy lab.

On Thursday, the students and school officials held a ceremony to thank Russell physician Dr. Earl Merkel and his wife, Kathleen, whose donation made the lab possible.

The school accepted its first eight students last fall and is the smallest
four-year medical school in the country.

Merkel has been a longtime advocate of recruiting physicians to practice in western Kansas. One of the Salina school's main objectives is to train more doctors for rural areas.
