The Rheumatology Fellowship Program at the University of Kentucky in Lexington, KY, combines a balanced experience in clinical rheumatology, basic science, and research, allowing graduates the opportunity to pursue either an academic or private practice career. During the 2-year program, Fellows rotate through adult ambulatory clinics at the University of Kentucky Medical Center. They can also rotate through the pediatric rheumatology clinic with Dr. Patti Lu-Fritts, Section Head of Pediatric Rheumatology at UK and the Kentucky Children's Hospital, and the Arthritis Center of Lexington, a private practice setting with adjunct faculty from the University of Kentucky. Fellows will be able to tailor a wide range of research and scholarly activities to their own interests and career goals under the supervision of dedicated and experienced faculty, including a Clinician Educator Track through the Office of Medical Education.
The program is directed by the Division Chief, Dr. Kristine M. Lohr. The division's 4 faculty, 3 nurse practitioners, and clinic and administrative staff all support the program at the Kentucky Clinic and Good Samaritan Hospital.
