Officials of the University of Kansas are scheduled to report later this week on expansion plans for the university's medical school programs in Salina and Wichita.

The Salina expansion is geared toward preparing students to practice in rural Kansas. Officials say they hope to have national accreditation and funding in place to expand the medical school class in 2011 or 2012.

The university's School of Medicine-Wichita is already a two-year program. Officials have said they hope to take in first-year students as early as next fall.

First- and second-year University of Kansas medical students are currently trained in Kansas City, Kan.

The report is scheduled to be delivered Thursday to the Board of Regents.
