The mission of the University of Kentucky College of Health Sciences (CHS) is to help the people of the Commonwealth of Kentucky and beyond attain the highest level of health possible. We fulfill our mission through creative leadership and productivity in education, research, and service.
CHS has a distinguished history of preparing students for successful careers in the health sciences. Our college was among the first of 13 charter schools for allied health in the country. CHS was founded in 1966, with certificate, associate, and bachelor's degrees. We now offer undergraduate and graduate degrees, as well as minor and certificate options, across nine health sciences disciplines.
At the College of Health Sciences, we are dedicated to educating frontline entry-level practitioners for the allied health disciplines in our college, as well as educating the clinical, educational and research leaders of tomorrow.
