    Anyone know anything about pikeville? first of the hell do you get there? Some guy i talked to who works in admissions said that they dont have an airport, so you'll have to drive like 3 hours from louisville if you fly...

    Whats in pikeville anyway? i know this may sound kinda funny but someone told me, the main attraction there is a "Wal-Mart"

    I do believe it was the site of the Hatfield - McCoy feud.

    Pikeville is in the mountains of Eastern Kentucky. It is basically the middle of nowhere. There isn't much to do there. It's about 3 or so hours from Lexington, KY, and 3 hours or so from Charleston, WV.

    Pikeville is 2 hours from Charleston, WV. Yes there is the Wal Mart and Lowe's, but there is also some great restuarants, a beautiful lake, a brand new hospital, movie theater's, etc etc that any other small town has.

    So far I have only done one month ER rotation at Pikeville, but I plan on doing more. But PikevilleMedStudent here on the boards can tell you so much more. I am sure he will post soon.

    I know a lot about Pikeville. The best way to get there is to fly to Huntington, WV. Close second would be Lexington, KY or Charleston, WV. Its a long drive from Louisville but definitely do able. It is about 1.5 hours from Huntington, maybe not even that much. Since I answered your questions, how about answering mine? Why the interest in Pikeville?
