University of Kentucky College of Medicine

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 is establishing a four-year regional campus in Bowling Green in partnership with Western Kentucky University and The Medical Center at Bowling Green.

The resources at the Bowling Green Campus allow the regional medical campus to offer two combined degree programs in conjunction with Western Kentucky University: MD/MBA and MD/MPH.

The Region’s Best Healthcare, Close to Home

The flagship hospital of Commonwealth Health Corporation (CHC), The Medical Center at Bowling Green is a 337-bed, acute care hospital that offers the region’s most comprehensive services.
