Rural Physician Leadership Program

The University of Kentucky College of Medicine has developed an educational program to identify and train physicians who desire to serve as practitioners and leaders in rural settings. This program is in response to the growing health care needs evident in rural areas of Kentucky and the rest of the nation. Such areas have limited access to physicians and other health care professionals. The Rural Physician Leadership Program (RPLP) is unique to the University of Kentucky and is designed to produce physicians in all specialties who can provide health care leadership. As an important outcome of this special educational pathway, graduates of RPLP gain knowledge and experience necessary to work with other civic and community leaders to improve the general health of their communities.

The College of Medicine has partnered with health care providers, hospitals, clinics, and Morehead State University to train rural physician-leaders. The program at the Morehead site currently accepts up to 10 students per year.

If you are interested in visiting the Morehead site and learning more about the Rural Physician Leadership Program, plan to attend one of the following open houses:
