We believe that residency is the most important aspect of professional training. Our program prioritizes resident education through the use of our nationally recognized didactic program. Additionally, clinical excellence is paramount and a primary objective of our program. Your residency at the University of Kentucky will provide you with the foundational skills necessary to become an outstanding clinician for any path you may choose following your training. We recognize that our residents are the future of our specialty and we endeavor to develop the next generation of leaders in health care. We aim to produce consultants and professionals who are not only outstanding clinically but who can grow with innovations in technology in modern anesthesia and are prepared for the demographics and the changing patterns of health care for the future. We implement a team-based approach to patient care and advocate for a culture that not only caters to providing excellent clinical care for our patients but fosters lifelong colleagues and friends.
Growth, innovation, and continued outstanding clinical excellence are instilled within our department. I invite you to explore our website, meet our outstanding faculty, and examine our residency and fellowship programs.
