    UK students: If you have symptoms of parotid salivary gland swelling, please read the message from UK Administration regarding Mumps Information and Precautions (PDF, 72 KB) and the CDC mumps homepage for more information. 

    University Health Service (UHS) is your source for employee and student health care. Our physicians are board certified in family practice, internal medicine, psychiatry, emergency medicine, sports medicine and occupational medicine. Our nurse practitioners have certifications in family medicine, women's health and psychiatry. 

    UK students can come to UHS for:

    • Primary care.
    • Women’s care.
    • Nursing visits (compliance, vaccinations, TB screening, allergy shots).
    • Behavioral health.
    • Health education, nutrition and wellness.

    UK employees can come to UHS for:

    • Required compliance items (such as annual TB screening and immunizations).
    • Bloodborne pathogen exposures.
    • Worker’s care.

    UK employees who have a UK health insurance plan can come to the UK Health Plans Urgent Care Clinic for urgent care needs.


    While the Health Fee does not include dental care, dental care services are available on-campus at both the Kentucky Clinic and in the UK College of Dentistry. Most dental insurance plans are billable.
