I am honored to be the Acting Chair of the UK College of Medicine Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology. I am proud to be from Kentucky, a graduate of the University of Kentucky College of Medicine, a graduate of our own obstetrics and gynecology residency, and a faculty member within the general obstetrics and gynecology division since 2009. Thus, I am personally connected to our department’s mission.
Our faculty are highly skilled physicians, surgeons, scientists, and educators who have dedicated their careers to advancing obstetrics and gynecology care in Kentucky, nationally, and internationally. I invite you to look through our faculty pages to learn more about each of them.
Our mission starts with patient care. We strive to provide all patients access to an ever-expanding scope of clinical care within our specialty. The department’s division pages highlight the division chiefs and the programs they have developed. Review these pages and you too will understand my pride for our clinical programs.
The scope of our clinical care allows for the medical student, resident, and fellowship programs to flourish. Our residency graduates are ready to start an exciting career after residency or continue their training through fellowships. Each year, we introduce medical students to our specialty and support them through their application and matching process. We are proud to host the only gynecologic oncology and maternal fetal medicine fellowships in Kentucky.
Our department’s research efforts are impressive. We have a women’s health research division that houses NIH funded ovarian physiology laboratories as well as federally funded research into preventing or reducing the impact of all types of violence against women and girls. Research curiosity naturally extends into our clinical programs where research into cancer, therapeutics, preterm birth, preeclampsia, fibroids, and endometriosis aim to change the future of obstetrics and gynecology.
