Admissions into the Human Health Sciences program are holistic in nature. Consideration is given to academic rigor and achievement, leadership and community involvement, health care focus and experience, and cultural understanding and experiences. There will be an admissions cap of approximately 75 students for each yearly cohort. Admissions processes into the Human Health Sciences program are described below for both current high school students as well as current UK students. Qualified students after the application process will be invited to a 20-30 minute interview with faculty and staff connected to the program. Interviews will be coordinated based upon applicants’ availability, distance to campus, etc. and can be in-person (strongly preferred if possible), telephone, or Skype.
While holistic in scope, admission into HHS is a highly competitive process. The following factors are taken into consideration as part of the admissions decision:
