The University of Kentucky College of Pharmacy (UKCOP) is adding its 11th affiliated pharmacy residency program through its partnership with The Medical Center at Bowling Green. The program is being spearheaded by UKCOP alumni Glee Lenoir (BS 1988, PharmD 1994) and Caleb Benningfield (PharmD 2008) who are excited for the opportunity to combine the strengths of both The Medical Center and UKCOP.

“This new pharmacy residency partnership will enhance the clinical pharmacy experience at The Medical Center at Bowling Green. The collaboration of innovative teaching and research at the University of Kentucky with Med Center Health will help to train pharmacy leaders who are ready to advance the practice of pharmacy and improve access to high quality medical care across Kentucky,” said Lenoir.

The addition of the newest residency will bring the total number of UKCOP-affiliated pharmacy residents across the Commonwealth to 54. Bowling Green will recruit two PGY1 pharmacy residency positions to begin July 2021.

“This is an exciting opportunity for students to be a part of a progressive hospital committed to the kind of values, forward thinking, and strategy that UKCOP instills in everyone. This affiliation with UKCOP provides an opportunity to align UKCOP’s brand of high quality, patient-centered care with Med Center Health’s mission to care for people and improve the quality of life in the communities we serve. This partnership is a tremendous accomplishment for everyone involved,” said Benningfield.

We wish to remember and honor those who inhabited this Commonwealth before the arrival of the Europeans. Briefly occupying these lands were the Osage, Wyndott tribe, and Miami peoples. The Adena and Hopewell peoples, who are recognized by the naming of the time period in which they resided here, were here more permanently. Some of their mounds remain in the Lexington area, including at UK’s Adena Park.

In more recent years, the Cherokee occupied southeast Kentucky, the Yuchi southwest Kentucky, the Chickasaw extreme western Kentucky and the Shawnee central Kentucky including what is now the city of Lexington. The Shawnee left when colonization pushed through the Appalachian Mountains. Lower Shawnee Town ceremonial grounds are still visible in Greenup County.

We honor the first inhabitants who were here, respect their culture, and acknowledge the presence of their descendants who are here today in all walks of life including fellow pharmacists and healthcare professionals.
