“The good physician treats the disease; the great physician treats the patient who has the disease.” William Osler

At the University of Kentucky College of Medicine, we have the privilege to educate future physicians and scientists in a transformational academic environment with innovative research and state-of-the-art patient care.

We are committed to serving the Commonwealth and beyond through the translation, application, and dissemination of research discovery; committed to enhancing diversity and inclusivity, to best provide education and care to an increasingly diverse local and global community; committed to innovative science and technology, to promote health and wellness with a deep community engagement; and, as indicated in the quote above by Sir William Osler, committed to efforts to understand the individual and the biology of each illness, with a more precise (or precision medicine) approach.
