My name is W. Scott Black; I serve as the medical director of UK Employee Health and am also a team physician for the UK Wildcats and the EKU Colonels. I am a graduate of the UK College of Medicine and completed my family medicine residency at UK. After working in private practice for several years, I returned to the University of Kentucky to finish a Master of Science degree in exercise physiology. I then completed a sports medicine fellowship at Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, N.C.
Prior to joining the UHS staff in 2007, I was on faculty at the University of Louisville, where I established the sports medicine fellowship and served as team physician.
