Transform Health – University Health Service

Transform Health is a partnership of UK HealthCare providers who have the shared goal of meeting many of the unique medical needs of people who identify in the broad LGBTQ+ spectrum in a way they can feel safe, affirmed, and receive evidence-based care.

University Health Service

All full-time UK students pay a mandatory health fee that entitles them to office visits at UHS for free. Health insurance coverage is strongly recommended for expenses not covered by the health fee, including most diagnostic procedures, surgery, hospitalization and prescription medicine.

  • Training the next generation of health care providers
