Primary Care Chief Residents

Cameron Suarez, MD, MPH

On my first November visit to Lexington, I was impressed by the beautiful orange and red fall colors, large academic medical center, and down-to-earth faculty who seemed genuinely interested in furthering my career goals. The Primary Care Program presented a rare opportunity to individualize my training and earn an MBA during residency. UK even covers the cost of tuition for residents! My wife, Carley, and I love discovering the diverse local food scene and hiking nearby trails with our dogs. Next year, I will be staying on at UK as a Chief Internal Medicine Resident. Then I plan to work as a primary care internist. Ultimately, I want to take care of patients at an individual level as well as manage health care at a population level.

I am so thankful for my opportunity to train at the University of Kentucky. My choice to apply to the Primary Care Program was driven by the unique curriculum emphasizing increased outpatient exposure and tight knit community within an academic setting. This program has provided me with the tools to reach my career goals while also helping me grow into the best version of myself. Outside of residency, I enjoy cheering on Kentucky basketball (go cats!) and exploring Lexington’s ever-evolving food scene. I may be a bit biased after living here for almost 28 years, but I truly believe this city has something to offer everyone within all chapters of life. I look forward to completing my training this year and pursuing my career as a primary care physician, serving the people of Kentucky.
