Primary Care Residency


Chief Residents

Nick and Lauren


The Primary Care Track offers an option to complete an Internal Medicine residency with an emphasis on outpatient medicine.  We are excited you have chosen to consider our track as a training option.  We imagine you wonder why our training is unique and desirable to incoming residents?

Outpatient medicine is the cornerstone of not only general internal medicine practice, but also all subspecialties.  Whether, you choose to pursue a clinic career, hospital medicine or a fellowship, we know our training program will prepare you well.  The time you spend in an outpatient setting can be used to form relationships with future colleagues and expose you to surgical problems often first managed by the outpatient clinician.  We encourage you to look further into our curriculum as we feel these three years have greatly enhanced our future careers. 

Within the primary care track, we have also developed out own ambulatory curriculum.  On the 2nd and 4th Fridays of every month, our program meets for Primary Care Conference.  These hours are spent discussing pertinent issues to clinic medicine, reviewing MKSAP questions and every 2nd and 3rd year leads one meeting in order to review a topic of their choice.  We also review one to two journal articles each month to stay current on outpatient topics. 

Additionally, the primary care track is a small subset of the internal medicine residency program consisting of approximately 18 residents.  Our size allows us to know one another personally and we feel a strong sense of community.  Each quarter, the primary care track gathers outside of work to relax and have fun.  These events include dinners, tailgates and time at Keeneland. 

Thank you for taking the time to look into the University of Kentucky.  If you have any questions about our program, please feel free to contact either of us!
