Each of the 600 physicians who treat patients with UofL Physicians also teach and do research with the UofL School of Medicine. In addition to their clinical practice, each doctor is affiliated with a department within the medical school. For example, doctors who see patients through the UofL Physicians-Women’s Health practice are part of the School of Medicine’s Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Women’s Health.
Visit the School of Medicine’s website to learn more about the individual departments, their programs and the next generation of physicians.
