Welcome to UK College of Medicine's MD/PhD Program

The University of Kentucky MD/PhD Training Program leverages the strong institutional environment to prepare exceptional students to assume leadership positions at the forefront of scientific and medical discovery. The MD/PhD Program has benefited from broad institutional investment to promote basic, translational, and clinical science by attracting top-caliber students and producing well-prepared physician scientists. As one of only a handful of universities to have six health care colleges on the same campus, we offer a wide range of graduate training opportunities. The range of multidisciplinary research is what makes UK unique.
