"As a result of not originally being from this area, people often ask me why I came to Pikeville. The answer is very simple, I wanted to train at the best place in the country for the skills I wanted. Pikeville Family Practice Residency Program trains well rounded, confident, compassionate physicians. I was impressed with the program as a visiting student and remained impressed after completing my four years of training. The staff, nurses and attending physicians are excellent and supportive.

Residency Program: Plus One
Medical School: University of Pikeville Kentucky College of Osteopathic Medicine
"During my time in the Family Medicine Residency, I received excellent experiences. I felt well prepared to see patients in both a clinic and hospital setting upon graduation.

"During my 3rd and 4th years of rotations, PMC was my hubsite. I chose PMC not only because I was a resident of the area but because of the reputation for wonderful learning opportunities as well as physicians who love to teach, which was important to myself in my selected hubsite and future residency program. The faculty and staff were always helpful and friendly and made me feel very welcome and comfortable. It was also a blessing to train in an area I grew up in as well as the learning opportunities that are provided from working in a rural setting. I am very thankful for my residency training and for my mentors for all the time they donated to benefit my future."
April Ratliff, D.O. (2013)
Medical School: Pikeville College School of Osteopathic Medicine
"I knew I wanted to do Family Practice and in a hospital where everyone was treated with respect and as an individual.
