Four-Year Residency Program 

The overall educational objective of the four-year residency program at the UK College of Medicine Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology 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 office-based practice. Moreover, we desire that our graduates communicate well with their patients and families and 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 the increase of responsibilities with each year of residency. We are committed to meeting the individual learning needs of resident physicians by preparing lifelong 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.

As a graduate of the University of Kentucky College of Medicine myself, I am passionate about and proud of the quality of physicians that we educate and train here. I strive to ensure our residents are technically skilled, patient-centered, well-rounded, and overall WELL physicians. Our residents graduate with confidence knowing that they will excel as they venture out into the world to start their careers or further their training in fellowship.
