Community vs University

You have the best of both worlds at UK Family Medicine Residency. The support of nationally recognized university faculty while you gain practical experiences in the community. University of Kentucky is the "Birthplace of Community Medicine" with a tradition that spans over 31 years.

Outpatient Clinic Service: Turfland Clinic (Lexington, KY). Faculty and staff in Family & Community Medicine recently received recognition as a Patient-Centered Medical Home Level III by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA). The NCAQ's recognition emphasizes use of evidence-based, patient-centered processes that promote teamwork and long-term relationships with patients. As well, it considers implementation of information technology that improves quality, patient experiences and reducing costs. Includes 50 exam rooms; 2 procedure rooms; clinical laboratory, and much more.

Inpatient Hospital Service: Our adult patients requiring hospitalization will usually be admitted to the Family Medicine Service at UK Good Samaritan Hospital. Some conditions require hospitalization at UK Chandler Hospital by physicians from other specialties. Infants and children requiring hospitalization are admitted to Kentucky Children's Hospital at UK.
