Letter From The Program Director

We are pleased you have decided to get to know us!  We hope this website will help you get to know us better.

For students who are researching residencies, you are about to embark on the journey of residency which will be the basis of your future medical career.  As you join the group of physicians who practice Combined Medicine/Pediatrics, you join a dynamic group of outstanding primary care physicians, subspecialists, clinical educators and leaders in healthcare.


 

The University of Louisville School of Medicine has offered training in Combined Medicine/Pediatrics since 1987.  We combine two exceptional parent departments with the University of Louisville categorical Internal Medicine and Pediatrics Residency Programs into an integrated residency. Our goal being the training of doctors who are able to provide outstanding clinical care to both adults and children. Both programs provide a wide range of clinical exposure, opportunities for research, and strong faculty. Our graduates are well-prepared for all the opportunities that combined Med/Peds training should offer including primary care, hospitalist medicine, academic medicine, and subspecialty training.  Our graduates have gone on to practice in the settings of primary care, subspecialty practice, hospitalist practice and academics here in Kentucky and beyond. Our residents are exceptional, motivated teachers and highly skilled physicians.


 

 

 

The faculty of both our parent departments are enthusiastic teachers who are passionate about providing thoughtful and state of the art care to our patients. We are also fortunate to have substantial support from Med/Peds trained physicians in the community, many of whom serve as gratis faculty.

 

What are the strengths of our program?  First and foremost, it’s our residents and faculty.

Sincerely,

Laura Workman, M.D.
