Eastern KY Schools Team Up For Higher Education

Officials from the University of Pikeville (UPIKE) and Big Sandy Community and Technical College (BSCTC) have agreed to offer students pursuing medical careers a new educational pathway. “When two higher education institutions, each unique in their own respects, collaborate, synergy is born,” said BSCTC President/Ceo Sherry Zylka. Students from Big Sandy can now finish another degree at UPIKE. “They will come and finish two years in a biology major at University of Pikeville and have an opportunity for early admission into the Kentucky College of Osteopathic Medicine (KYCOM),” said Dana Shaffer, dean of KYCOM.
