We share the University of Kentucky core values that diversity, equity, and inclusion make our mission complete. Our focus has been to encourage the involvement of people of all ethnicities and backgrounds within our faculty, residents, fellows, and staff. Renunciation of any form of discrimination and bigotry is a priority amongst all of our department.


Respect and embrace differences in all aspects of the individual. Celebrate the process of coming together and learning from the spectrum of diversity.


Biases, both conscious and unconscious, are confronted and resolved, leading to improved relationships and understanding between all members of the department.  


Without compromising quality, we actively encourage recruitment in all tiers of our department and openly welcome candidates from all ethnic and cultural backgrounds.
