Student Fellowships

The K-PORCH Student Fellows Program seeks to identify students and other trainees with an interest in perioperative health outcomes and research and to develop that interest into a future career as a clinician scientist. K-PORCH Fellows are matched with a K-PORCH Scholar, who provides individualized mentorship and career guidance. K-PORCH Fellows will complete a perioperative project, developed with the help and support of their mentor, and will present their work at a dedicated forum hosted by the UK Department of Anesthesiology, Perioperative, Critical Care, and Pain Medicine.

The K-PORCH Student Fellows Program offers a $2000 stipend to cover room and board costs, typically to support a short-term mentored research project, over an 8-week summer program. In addition, there will be quarterly dinner meetings to discuss project design, analysis and results in an informal forum. If interested, please complete the brief questionnaire at the link below for additional information.

Visiting Scholars

The K-PORCH Visiting Scholars Program seeks to bring experts in health and outcomes research to the University of Kentucky to share their experiences, expertise, and research about various topics that meet the goal of improving the health of patients throughout the perioperative period.
