What Our Graduates Say
"I truly appreciate all UK IM has done for me personally and professionally. I believe the critical care experience is one of a kind at UK and has certainly prepped me well for a fellowship in cardiology."
"I'm now a general internist in a busy practice in a small town. My training was great for what I am doing. I received great impatient and outpatient training which is exactly what I am doing now. Glad I chose UK!"
"I didn't realize just how well we were trained at UK, until I left UK. I was beyond prepared for the next step out of residency, and I am a better physician after my time in Lexington."
"I think I am especially prepared caring for complex and critically ill patients after my time at UK. I find more so than my peers I am comfortable managing high acuity and forming at least an educated preliminary plan with little or no oversight. Especially since I am now in a very clinically busy program full of patients with multiple medical problems, I'm thankful for my general medicine training."
"I feel the acuity and complexity of the patients I encountered during my residency training prepared me very well for a critical care fellowship. I also feel the autonomy and teaching skills I was provided help me to efficiently run an ICU team and commit to plans for very complex patients."
