A Letter from the Program Director

Welcome to the University of Kentucky College of Medicine Obstetrics and Gynecology Program located at The Medical Center at Bowling Green. Our program is approved by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) for three residents per year in the four-year program. Our mission is to prepare our residents to become high quality physicians who possess excellent clinical and surgical skills and are able to provide superior health care to women in Obstetrics, Gynecology and Primary/Preventive Care. We will strive to have our residents provide this care in a manner that is compassionate, ethical, and patient centered.

The clinical curriculum for this program will include extensive experience over the course of four years in ambulatory and inpatient obstetrics, clinical and surgical gynecology, family planning, and primary care. Through our partnerships with the main University of Kentucky campus and the University of Cincinnati, our residents will have exposure to cutting-edge treatment of gynecologic oncology and reproductive endocrinology/infertility problems. Our residents will also have extensive training in managing high-risk obstetrical patients with both our local maternal-fetal medicine specialists as well as the perinatologists at the main University of Kentucky campus in Lexington.

In addition to abundant clinical and surgical experience under the training and guidance of our experienced faculty, our residents will participate in weekly didactic sessions covering the broad expanse of up-to-date information needed to provide high-quality medical care. We will also utilize simulations to allow initial exposure to complex and high risk clinical, obstetrical, and surgical situations in a safe and controlled manner.

The Medical Center at Bowling Green is committed to providing opportunities for trainees as well as faculty to participate in scholarly activity. Residents are given the opportunity to participate in other scholarly activity opportunities including submission of abstracts for poster and podium presentations at regional or national meetings. All residents will be involved in quality improvement (QI) projects to provide the highest quality and safest care to patients in our program and also provide the skills needed to continue striving for the continuously improving care in practice after completing the residency. Finally, residents participate in research projects under the direction of faculty mentors.

Thank you for your interest in our program. If you have any questions, please contact Kayla Thomas, Program Coordinator, at 270-780-2684.
