Letter from the Program Direction, Dr. Workman

Dr. Laura Workman, PDWe are pleased you have decided to visit our site! We hope this website will help you get to know more about our program.

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 Med-Peds, you join a dynamic and diverse 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 Internal Medicine & Pediatrics since 1987. We combine two exceptional parent departments with the University of Louisville Categorical Internal Medicine and Pediatrics Programs into an integrated residency. Our goal is to train doctors who are able to provide outstanding, compassionate clinical care to both adults and children while impacting their communities. Both programs provide a wide range of clinical exposure, opportunities for research and strong faculty. Our residents are exceptional, motivated teachers and highly skilled physicians. Our graduates are well-prepared for all the opportunities that Med-Peds training should offer including primary care, hospitalist medicine, academic medicine and subspecialty training. Our graduates are practicing these here in Kentucky and beyond.

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

Our faculty of both of our parent departments and our Med-Peds department are enthusiastic teachers and are passionate about providing thoughtful, evidence-based, state-of-the-art, compassionate 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 and provide a unique private practice experience to our residents.

 Feel free to browse our website or visit for additional facts about the program and information about the Louisville area. We have a UofL Med-Peds Facebook and Instagram (@LouisvilleMedPeds) that feature some of our day-to-day activities. Thanks for visiting!

 

Sincerely,

Laura Workman, M.D.
