Letter From The Director

The UK Clinical Leadership and Management Bachelor of Health Sciences degree lays the groundwork for graduates to pursue careers and advanced education as competent, evidence-informed, effective leaders and reflective life-long learners prepared to engage in interprofessional healthcare management practice. Graduates develop fundamental knowledge, values, and skills to lead with cultural humility and promote compassionate, efficient, responsive services to improve healthcare outcomes, the patient experience, access to healthcare, and quality of life for people in the Commonwealth of Kentucky and beyond.

Clinical Leadership & Management students spend extensive time both in the classroom and in practicum sites (such as UK Healthcare, Kentucky Cancer Link, American Cancer Society Hope Lodge, Morning Pointe Nursing Home facilities, and many more) to learn and gain experience to become future healthcare administrators. The CLM undergraduate degree program also prepares students to pursue graduate degrees in programs such as Health Administration, Business Administration, Health Informatics, and Public Health.

The College of Health Sciences has a dedicated, nationally and internationally, renowned teaching faculty. In addition, we have a number of co-curricular opportunities for our students including service to the Commonwealth, a living-learning community, research for undergraduates, as well as study abroad opportunities. I encourage you to browse our website to explore all the reasons for making Clinical Leadership & Management your undergraduate home!

We welcome questions regarding our program. Please feel free to contact our CLM Advisor, Allison Burton at arrich2@uky.edu,  or our Director of Undergraduate Studies in CLM, Dr. Sarah Kercsmar, at sarah.kercsmar@uky.edu or 859-218-0514.
