KYCOM and Go Ministries

In 2016, the mission team of more than 34 volunteers included 29 KYCOM students. Approximately 1,100 patients ranging in age from infant to mid-80s were treated over the course of three days at clinics in Batey Nueve, Batey Cuchillo and Batey Cinco. Patients were provided with prescriptions and over-the-counter medications, first-aid care and osteopathic manipulative treatment (OMT). Click here to view slideshow.

In addition to medical assistance, ministering to those in need was an integral part of the effort. A children’s ministry, a special part of every mission trip, included a vacation Bible school and playing soccer and baseball.

The trip is sponsored by the medical school’s chapter of the Rotaract, in conjunction with G.O. Ministries (www.go-ministries.org) in Louisville, Ky., a Christian non-profit organization dedicated to the ministry of short-term missions and the development of global partnerships of ministry.


The 2013 KYCOM medical mission team managed by the KYCOM Roteract, led more than 40 volunteers, including 33 KYCOM students and University of Pikeville First Lady Tina Hurley (’99), to Batey Nueve, Dominican Republic. The mission team treated about 900 patients, from infant to mid-80's, over the course of three days in clinics in Batey Nueve, Batey Chuchillo and Batey Cinco.

In 2012, the team of 23 medical students serviced more than 800 patients in a period of two days. For the 40 orphans at the nutrition center, students helped provide food, medication and vitamins.
