High-Quality Medical Education Across Kentucky

As the flagship higher education institution for the Commonwealth, the University of Kentucky College of Medicine is dedicated to providing high-quality medical education across the state. One of the most critical health needs confronting Kentucky is the shortage of physicians, particularly primary care doctors serving in community settings. To address that need, the UK College of Medicine established a four-year regional campus in Bowling Green in partnership with Western Kentucky University and The Medical Center at Bowling Green to expand medical student enrollment utilizing existing resources throughout the state.

We believe in providing future generations of doctors, researchers, and scientists with a strong foundation in medical education so that they are prepared for the advances in medicine that have not been discovered yet. That means developing lifelong learners who are curious, compassionate, collaborative, and professional. With four campuses, the University of Kentucky College of Medicine offers distinct programs that share a common curriculum. In addition to the traditional medical degree, The University of Kentucky College of Medicine-Bowling Green Campus offers combined degree programs.
