Medical Students

The Lake Cumberland Graduate Medical Education Program hosts third-year and fourth-year medical students in a variety of rotations in hospital and physician practice settings. The program strives to provide a patient-centric, evidence-based medicine educational experience in which learners gain valuable skills in examination techniques, differential diagnoses & therapeutic planning. Under the mentorship of attending physicians, students learn to take a primary role in the care of their patients, participate in procedures, and gain professional interpersonal communication skills. Students work closely with interns, senior residents, residency faculty members, and local osteopathic and allopathic physicians who are “hands-on” and committed to providing the best possible learning experiences for learners in each discipline.

Lake Cumberland is a core site for 3rd and 4th year medical students from University of Pikeville - Kentucky College of Osteopathic Medicine (UP-KYCOM) and Lincoln Memorial University - DeBusk College of Osteopathic Medicine (LMU-DCOM). Rotations are scheduled by the Medical Student Coordinator at LCRH, who in turn works with the respective Clinical Coordinators at the medical schools.
