Kentucky College of Medicine

The roots of the University of Kentucky College of Medicine run deep. While this year marks 50 years of existence, the dream of a state medical school in the Commonwealth was born long before this past half-century. Since that cold day in December 1957 when the official groundbreaking ceremony took place, the College of Medicine has become a world-class medical center. This website timeline will take you on a journey of just a few of the significant milestones from the past 50 years.
