Overall Summary
1. What do you like best about your school?
Overall Summary
  • - UK is fairly layed back. In general there are few great egos wandering the wards, and faculty/staff are responsive to requests for help. - During years 1 and 2, lectures are held from 8am to noon, with 2-3 hours of afternoon lectures only twice a week. This means there is adequate study time because you have afternoons free 3 days/week. This allows you to have a life outside of medical school! There is no attendance taken at most lectures, so if you learn better on your own, you have that choice. Administration is very supportive of students. Many students are married and several have children, and the environment supports this. Third year (clinical rotations) is tough but I think our call is light compared to other schools. You have overnight call on peds and surgery only. UK stresses primary care (fp, medicine, peds) and you will be well supported if you choose these fields.

12. What do you like least about your school?
Overall Summary
  • - Learning medicine at UK seems to be a "teach yourself medicine" approach. If you do not actively pursue education, it will pass you by. - Quality of teaching in some classes in years 1 & 2 is poor, but I think they are working to change some of that. I found that you teach yourself most of the material in the long run.

13. Please share any other thoughts you may have about your school.
Overall Summary
  • - This is a small med school in a small town. For a family person, it was great; but many of my peers felt it was socialy restrictive. - Good for students who want exposure to primary care and a poorly served Appalachian area.
