GME Programs

The University of Kentucky offers physician training programs in most medical and surgical specialties, and also offers training programs in dentistry, oral and maxillofacial surgery, pharmacy, optometry and health administration.

Through the Area Health Education Center (AHEC) Program, many departments offer residency training experiences in hospitals and practices that serve rural and underserved populations.
