Family and Community Medicine Residency Programs

We have excellent programs that prepares our residents well for a career in Family Medicine. Our department was established in 1972 the purpose of training family physicians to provide primary care for the state of Kentucky. Since then, our residency programs have graduated more than 260 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 training that is second to none and individualized to each resident’s needs and to graduate family physicians who will become well-respected clinicians in their community.

Medical Student Education

We have a four week family medicine clerkship as part of the required curriculum for all medical students. Many sites are in our rural communities and afford students the opportunity to live and learn more about our Commonwealth. A variety of electives in the fourth year of medical school also gives students the continued opportunity to explore a variety of family medicine opportunities, from sports medicine to global health.
