Northern Kentucky University

Our campus is located on the grounds of Northern Kentucky University (NKU) in Highland Heights, Ky. This unique partnership provides our medical students with access to state-of-the-art dining, wellness, and academic facilities. Additionally, our students have access to and receive instruction in the NKU simulation center.

Founded in 1968, NKU is a growing metropolitan university of more than 14,000 students served by over 2,000 faculty and staff on a thriving suburban campus near Cincinnati. Students have the opportunity to choose from nearly 100 bachelor’s degrees, 24 graduate programs, or law school. For nine years in a row, NKU has been named one of America’s Best Colleges by Forbes.

The university thrives by doing things differently. No greater opportunity exists to change and improve lives than addressing population health/challenges. It is clear that what has worked in the past does not always work in today’s increasingly complex society. In partnership with St. Elizabeth Healthcare and the UK College of Medicine, NKU is taking on the biggest, most important health challenges facing Kentucky’s communities. Together these institutions are transforming health science education to better equip, empower, and most importantly, inspire health care workers of tomorrow.
