Additional information

My name is Kristy Deep; I completed all of my medical training at the University of Kentucky. After an academic medicine fellowship, I joined the faculty in 2007. My clinical work is as a hospitalist and my areas of interest are doctor-patient communication, quality improvement and resident education. As a native Kentuckian, I am committed to the University of Kentucky and developing a health system that will provide excellent patient care as well as train the next generation of physicians for our state. I am board certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine.
