MD/PhD Program

The University of Kentucky’s MD/PhD program trains the best and brightest in the skills, intellectual tools, and science of both clinical medicine and ground-breaking biomedical research. As one of only a handful of universities to have six healthcare colleges on the same campus, we offer a wide range of graduate training opportunities. What makes UK unique is the range of multidisciplinary research and the exchange between physicians and investigators from different disciplines in our research centers.


At the University of Kentucky College of Medicine, we believe one of our unique advantages is that our faculty care about each one of our students. Here, it’s not just words or a mere mission statement we hang on our walls. At UK, we believe one-on-one interaction is vital to the success of our medical students.  At the University of Kentucky College of Medicine, we take pride in educating future physicians and scientists.
