For more than 40 years, there has been a strong partnership between the University of Kentucky College of Medicine and St. Claire Regional, allowing many medical students and residents to rotate through SCR in internal medicine, surgery, pathology and family & community medicine. SCR is proud to serve as an established training site for the University of Kentucky College of Medicine’s physician residency programs.
In 2005, SCR and the University of Kentucky Chandler Medical Center agreed to pursue defined affiliations focused on specific areas including Cardiology, Obstetrics and Oncology, as well as other potential clinical areas and education. By putting in place distinct formalized affiliation agreements for each of the selected clinical areas, collaborations are significantly accelerated. In addition to the immediate expansion of on-site offerings of specialized programs and services, these collaborations enable SCR to access the many resources of the university, which greatly enhances SCR’s clinical program development efforts.
