The Division of General Internal Medicine is the largest Division of the Department of Internal Medicine. Our diverse faculty and staff provide clinical services and educational programs and participate in research within the University of Kentucky's College of Medicine. Our commitment to providing general medical services to our patients and teaching to our learners is among the highest in the Department and in the College.
The Division's academic clinical faculty are active in an extensive array of educational services within the Department's, College's, and University's teaching programs. We are actively administrating and teaching in all five Colleges in the Medical Center (basic science and clinical courses), the University of Kentucky Graduate School, and in a number of other University colleges. Our academic faculty are recognized as leaders in teaching, educational administration, educational research and health services research at the regional, national and international levels and have received numerous awards for teaching and research from the College of Medicine and national organizations of teachers of Internal Medicine.
The Division's physicians are among the most sought-after primary care clinicians in the institution. Administrators and professors from the University, the UK Hospital and state government are patients in the Division's primary care practice. The Internal Medicine Group serves as the primary care provider for a large number of patients enrolled in the University Health plans and consistently receives excellent patient satisfaction ratings for their service.
