The UKCOP Effect
We expect our graduates to be adept at thinking critically, emotionally intelligent, to understand how to leverage technology with their practice, and to carry on the Kentucky tradition of providing the highest level of care. Innovative education, hard work, and collaborative practice and research are essential in transforming patient-centered care.
As a top-10 college of pharmacy, our impact is global. And no matter where we are, you can see the #ukcopeffect first hand. Whether it's on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic, medical outreach in Ecuador, or serving our community here in Lexington, KY, our pharm fam is active across the world.
Alumni in the News
We wish to remember and honor those who inhabited this Commonwealth before the arrival of the Europeans. Briefly occupying these lands were the Osage, Wyndott tribe, and Miami peoples. The Adena and Hopewell peoples, who are recognized by the naming of the time period in which they resided here, were here more permanently. Some of their mounds remain in the Lexington area, including at UK’s Adena Park.
In more recent years, the Cherokee occupied southeast Kentucky, the Yuchi southwest Kentucky, the Chickasaw extreme western Kentucky and the Shawnee central Kentucky including what is now the city of Lexington. The Shawnee left when colonization pushed through the Appalachian Mountains. Lower Shawnee Town ceremonial grounds are still visible in Greenup County.
We honor the first inhabitants who were here, respect their culture, and acknowledge the presence of their descendants who are here today in all walks of life including fellow pharmacists and healthcare professionals.
