Previous ASOPRS Fellows

"I have had the pleasure of participating in the aside faculty in their fellowship training. They are all ASOPRS accredited fellows and defined what ASOPRS embodies. Should you want to discuss the University of Kentucky or ASOPRS fellowships in general, please reach out to our Fellowship Coordinator and they will put you in touch." -Dr. Peter Timoney
