At Hazard ARH we feel it is important for medical students to be exposed to our medical center early, and work closely with the medical schools at the Pikeville School of Osteopathic Medicine and Lincoln Memorial University. In addition, we offer a family practice residency program through the University of Kentucky and are currently exploring a surgical residency program. Located in beautiful southeastern Kentucky, Hazard is known as the "Queen City of the Mountains." Hazard is the county seat of Perry County, which has a population of approximately 30,000 residents. Rich in natural resources, Hazard and Perry County's history is tied to the coal and lumber industries. The Hazard and Perry County are fortunate to have multiple excellent elementary, middle and high schools.
While there are many natural recreational activities available in Hazard and surrounding eastern Kentucky communities, our hospital is only a beautiful two to three-hour drive away from metropolitan areas such as Lexington, Louisville, Cincinnati, Ohio, and Knoxville, Tennessee.
ARH is looking for physicians that wish to contribute to the betterment of our communities and want to spend a lifetime enjoying a broad clinical diversity, uncommon challenges and an opportunity to make an important personal difference in the lives of many.
