The class of 2023 welcomes you to the University of Kentucky Med-Peds program! Established in 1983, we have a long history of providing an excellent education in Internal Medicine and Pediatrics. The goal of our four-year curriculum is to prepare residents for successful careers in any of the opportunities available with combined training: outpatient primary care, hospital medicine, subspecialty fellowship, academics and/or research. With our incorporated children's hospital and expanding UK Chandler hospital, you will have a wide variety of exposure to patients from across the Commonwealth. Our adult hospital is rated near the top in acuity of patient care. Training at the UK will ensure you will be capable of taking care of patients anywhere after you complete your training.
One of the greatest strengths of our program is the strong work ethic and camaraderie of our residents. They are dedicated to creating a relaxed yet educational atmosphere while providing the highest quality patient care. They are frequently recognized for their excellence in patient care and education, receiving numerous teaching and clinical care awards. In addition, over the last five years, four of our residents have been selected as chief residents in either the categorical Internal Medicine or Pediatrics programs.
If you are interested in our combined training program at the University of Kentucky, please peruse our website. This is an excellent introduction to our program, and will hopefully answer most of your questions. Also, do not hesitate to email me or any of our residents with questions. We are always willing to help!
Good luck with the application process and we hope to meet you on the interview trail!
