  • Train residents in a diverse setting, an ambulatory medical home model and in community based and tertiary hospitals, where they will learn the essentials of managing complex patients in a team-based setting, leveraging a transformative healthcare approach that emphasizes chronic care management and preventive and continuity care across the age spectrum.
  • Recruit residents who demonstrate professionalism, value teamwork, provide patient-centered care, with a desire to remain in Kentucky after residency.
  • Foster collaborations within and outside the department through innovative educational programs that support learner interests and result in scholarly activity.
