The Michael D. Rankin MD Health Education Building will help transform medical education for future students — and ultimately improve care for patients across Kentucky. 

In October, a groundbreaking was held for the new 500,00-square-foot building, which will house programs in the colleges of MedicinePublic HealthHealth Sciences and Nursing as well as the Center for Interprofessional and Community Health Education

Earlier this month, the UK Board of Trustees approved the naming of the building as the “Michael D. Rankin MD Health Education Building.

For this "UK at the Half,” UK President Eli Capilouto discusses what this new building will mean to our campus — and the Commonwealth. 

“UK at the Half” airs during halftime of each UK football and basketball game broadcast on the radio and is hosted by UK Public Relations and Marketing. To hear the “UK at the Half” interview, click here.
