Welcome From the Program Director
I am extremely pleased that you have an interest in our Family Medicine Residency Program. We have an excellent program that prepares and trains the next generation of Family Physicians. Legacy- 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 260 plus Family Physicians. Mission - We strive to improve the health of the people of the Commonwealth and society at large. Goal - 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. Experiences- Our residents get the best experience by training in a busy Academic Medical Center as well as by providing continuity Inpatient care in a smaller, more patient-centered, community hospital within UK HealthCare. Our outpatient continuity clinic site is a Level III Patient Centered-Medical Home designated by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA), which elevates the practice to an elite status nationally. We 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. Commitment- Our engaged and nurturing faculty have a variety of interests including Women’s health, Population health, Sports Medicine, LGBTQ health and Global health. Atmosphere- Teamwork, respect, compassion and integrity are our values. Residents work with a group of committed staff, faculty and others who provide a very supportive learning atmosphere. I invite you to consider joining us and becoming part of our tradition of excellence at UK Healthcare.

Welcome From the Chief Residents
Welcome to our UK Family Medicine residency! We are honored and excited to represent our program as chief residents this year. As chiefs, we strive to achieve an atmosphere of cohesiveness and community in our program. Social events, including residency tailgates at UK football games and horse races at Keeneland, have helped create and maintain this sense of family. Additionally, we will be placing added emphasis on mentorship this year to ensure residents can grow and learn in a supportive environment. We plan to continue advocating on behalf of our residents and working with our faculty to help improve and shape our program. Thank you for taking the time to consider UK Family Medicine. Go Cats!
