Recent studies show that 60% of millennials prefer the convenience and privacy of online health care to traditional in-person care. At the same time, lack of access to healthcare remains a growing issue for rural and underserved communities. To address both trends, the University of Kentucky College of Health Sciences is pioneering training in telehealth through a new graduate certificate program.
The Graduate Certificate in Telehealth is the first of its kind among health sciences colleges and is the only telehealth certificate available in the state of Kentucky. The program trains both graduate students and practicing professionals to be leaders in development, implementation and evaluation of telehealth models.
The Graduate Certificate in Telehealth is comprised of three 3-credit courses (nine total credit hours) offered across three consecutive semesters beginning summer of 2020. Enrollment is open to all students participating in a health care graduate program and to practicing health care professionals seeking to expand the services they offer.
