IBS Interviews

The IBS Admissions Committee invites domestic students and international students in the U.S. whose applications have been favorably reviewed to visit the University of Kentucky College of Medicine. This offers prospective students the opportunity to meet with faculty whose research interests them, to meet our current graduate students, and to tour our research facilities. During the visit, there is time to ask questions about IBS and our doctoral programs, and, of course, we happily show off the lovely UK campus and the city of Lexington. Last but not least, this visit also provides the IBS Admissions Committee information they require about prospective students concerning their qualifications for admission.

We cover the costs (travel, meals, and hotel) of this visit to Lexington. For those flying into Lexington, the Office of Biomedical Education will make flight arrangements following consulation with you to determine the best itinerary possible. We also provide accommodations for students requiring an overnight stay.
