Message from Archana Kudrimoti, MBBS (MD), MPH - Residency Program Director I am extremely pleased that you have an interest in our Family Medicine Residency Program. We have an excellent program that prepares our residents well for a career in Family Medicine. In 1972, our department was established for the purpose of training family physicians to provide primary care for the state of Kentucky. Since then, our residency program has graduated 263 graduates. Our mission is to improve the health of the people of the Commonwealth and society at large. Our goal is to recruit excellent students, to provide exceptional training individualized to each resident’s needs, and to graduate family physicians who will become well-respected clinicians in their community.
Our residency training encompasses experiences in a busy tertiary care hospital as well as providing continuity hospital care in a smaller, more patient-centered, community hospital within UK HealthCare. Faculty and staff in Family & Community Medicine recently received designation as a Level III Patient Centered-Medical Home by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA), which elevates the practice to an elite status nationally. We also utilize community sites both in Lexington and the surrounding rural communities, allowing our program to have the best of both worlds and to prepare our residents for a wide variety of patient care needs. We also have high quality global health and sports medicine track opportunities for our residents.
