The University of Kentucky College of Medicine (UKCOM) retains a long history of educational commitment, quality, and innovation. Since undergoing a major curricular revision in the early 1990s, the evolving UKCOM curriculum has continued to incorporate advances in biomedical knowledge and pedagogy while meeting changing societal needs and expectations for physicians in practice. Building upon its established record of excellence in medical education, a curricular quality assurance (QA) program has been initiated to more efficiently guide improvement and innovation by providing faculty with key resources to identify and disseminate local best practices in teaching, learning, and evaluation. Through such efforts, the University of Kentucky College of Medicine is committed to providing a rich educational experience that will meet the needs of students, physicians, and patients well into the 21st century.
