Physician Assistant Studies

Welcome to the Morehead Campus!

The Morehead Campus is a satellite campus created to accommodate individuals interested in enhancing medical care for rural Eastern Kentucky and Appalachia. Nestled in the foothills of Eastern Kentucky, this campus is only 60 miles via interstate from Lexington. Located at the Center for Health Education & Research (CHER), this campus is a unique collaboration with Morehead State University (MSU) and St. Claire Regional Medical Center (SCRMC). The Morehead campus students complete the same course curriculum as the Lexington campus students, however many classes are observed using the ITV telecommunication system. The CHER building is a new 3 million dollar building with state of the art technology for ITV capabilities. The building also boasts a fully functional Gross Anatomy lab only used by the University of Kentucky PA students. The Morehead campus has 2 full-time professors and 2 full-time staff members operating at the campus (click link to meet the faculty/staff). Programs included at the CHER building are MSU's Nursing and Imaging Sciences, UK's Rural Physician Leadership Program and Family Medicine Residency and SCMRC Family Medicine Clinic and the Northeast Area Health Education Center (NEAHEC) The Morehead campus students in addition to having a UK student ID, also receive an MSU student ID. This allows the students to use the MSU health clinic, newly built recreation center and free athletic event access. The campus is located near Cave Run Lake which is also a particular highlight for the area (see links tab).
