Topeka is the capital city of the U.S. state of Kansas and the seat of Shawnee County.

What’s golden and smells like sunflowers? Some say Kansas. But we think this is the perfect description for the exciting new job that’s waiting for you in the Sunflower State.

Spend 25 to 50 percent of your time on your subspecialty when you replace the retiring physician at Stormont Vail’s well-established urology practice in Topeka. Doctors at this robust practice are a congenial group of friends who generate RVUs well above the national average, even as they commit to a balanced lifestyle and focus on their families in Kansas’s capital city.

Start as high as $500K+, with an exceptional benefits package that includes health, dental, vision, short-term disability, and malpractice, as well as a 403B, matching program, and SERP. The position also comes with loan forgiveness, relocation allowance, and commencement bonus.

Enjoy the easy walk from your clinic to the adjoining 580-bed main hospital. The additional Call of 1:5 is especially light, with a 24-hour nurse triage system taking first call. Two nurse practitioners, interventional radiologists, and hospitalists help keep the practice running smoothly. The practice is equipped with a da Vinci Xi.

You might not recognize downtown Topeka if you haven’t visited lately. Last year, the city’s new Evergy Plaza opened with a 50-foot concert stage, a splash pad, choreographed fountains, a fire pit, and a 30-foot-tall digital screen. The city has also recently revamped its streets and sidewalks and welcomed The Pennant and the Iron Rail Brewery, two new additions to the host of restaurants that give Topeka its reputation for great food. Yes, Topeka has all the standard national chains, but its residents are wild about their local favorites.  

Topeka stays active year-round. One family favorite is Gage Park, which includes the Topeka Zoo, the Blaisdell Family Aquatic Center, and the Helen Hocker Theater, as well as a mini-train, carousel, and dog park. The North Topeka Arts District hosts the Artsconnect First Friday Artwalk, which typically draws over three thousand people each month. Washburn University provides an ongoing lineup of athletics, music, plays, and lectures.

Hiking and biking trails are plentiful in Topeka, and the most beautiful among them is perhaps the Lake Shawnee Trail. But don’t stop with just a walk. Lake Shawnee is also a top tourist destination for its golf, boating, fishing, and camping.

Topeka is excited to be the new location of the recently renamed Heartland Stampede, an annual outdoor country music and camping festival that draws musicians such as Jason Aldean, Old Dominion, and Jake Owens. The city’s other popular festivals include the Huff ‘n Puff hot-air balloon rally and Fiesta Mexicana, a week-long celebration of Mexican culture featuring food, music, crafts, and carnival rides.

Family-friendly Topeka is close enough to Kansas City that you can drive over in the afternoon for dinner and a concert and then return home to sleep in your own bed. How does it feel to return home to lighter traffic, great schools, and a lower cost of living? It feels golden. It’s easy to relax in Topeka.
