Incoming Residents & Fellows

Congratulations and Welcome to the University of Kentucky!

We are so glad you will be joining us at the University of Kentucky. We look forward to working with you during your continued medical education. Onboarding requirements prior to GME Orientation will be shared through our MedHub portal. No later than Monday, March 28, you will receive instructions via email to begin the first of three MedHub onboarding packages. GME PGY-1 Orientation will take place June 13–17. Specific dates and activities for the program orientation will be confirmed by your Program Coordinator. Program Orientation typically occurs the week following GME Orientation. PGY-2+ Orientation will take place July 1–2. Bowling Green orientation will be June 27th-30th at The Medical Center Bowling Green.

PGY-1 Lexington Campus Tentative GME Orientation Week Schedules:

You will be on campus for Epic training and your GME onboarding session. Epic training will last 2.5–3 hours, depending on your specialty. Your GME onboarding session will take approximately 2 hours. These onboarding sessions provide an opportunity to complete your required UK Employee Health and I-9 appointments; get your UK ID badge, pager, UK parking permit, and lab coats or scrubs (depending on your program); and complete any additional requirements. You should plan to arrive on campus for your GME onboarding session 25–30 minutes before your scheduled start time. This will give you ample time to meet your GME orientation leader at an assigned parking location and walk to your first onboarding appointment. Food will be provided daily by GME for everyone who is required to come to campus.

During GME Orientation Week, you will also have the opportunity to make an appointment for a white coat portrait with a professional photographer. We will attempt to schedule your photograph appointment while you are already on campus. You and your program will receive a digital copy of the photo. Detailed photograph session appointment times will be added to program schedules in the next few weeks.

In addition to the events below, you will participate in two virtual presentation blocks of 4 to 5 hours on Monday morning and Friday afternoon. You can join those from home so you do NOT need to be on campus during those time blocks. All times are subject to change, but will be updated on this website and on the Whova app (watch your email for a link to the app in mid-April).
