Welcome from the Program Director
The overall educational objective of the four-year residency program at the University of Kentucky is to prepare our residents to become superior physicians who possess excellent clinical and surgical skills and are clinically excellent in the broad areas of Obstetrics, Gynecology, and Primary/Preventive practice. Moreover, we desire that our graduates communicate well with their patients and families, provide considerate, compassionate, and ethical care which they continually self-assess. We will accomplish these educational objectives through didactic instruction, comprehensive and diverse clinical training, role-modeling by our faculty and by increasing responsibilities with each year of residency. We are committed to meeting the individual learning needs of resident physicians by preparing life-long learners for consultative Obstetrics and Gynecology in order to prepare residents for post-graduate options ranging from rural practice to the most academically-oriented post-graduate fellowships.
Our residency program is fully accredited and follows the ACGME Program Requirements.
