As the flagship University 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 is establishing a four-year regional campus in Bowling Green in partnership with Western Kentucky University and The Medical Center at Bowling Green. The UK College of Medicine - Bowling Green Campus will complement training in Central Kentucky at the Lexington campus as well as the Rural Physician Leadership Program based in Morehead.
This new regional campus – with its first entering class in Fall 2018 – is part of a strategic initiative to expand medical education and train more doctors to treat Kentuckians.
