- Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion
My name is Aubrey Eubanks, and I was born and raised in Kansas City, Missouri (Go Chiefs!!). I completed my undergraduate studies at the University of Missouri where I obtained a Bachelor's degree in Health Sciences and a Minor in Psychology. During this time, I worked as a pharmacy technician, went to EMT school, shadowed extensively in neurosurgery, took part in medical research, and participated in various public health brigades in Honduras leading to a short stent of living there and learning from doctors in underserved community hospitals. I went on to complete PA school at Saint Louis University (SLU) and am now one of two ICU PA residents here at UK. Moving from a bigger city to Lexington, KY has been a great experience and I am grateful to have my fiancé, Jordan, and dog, Coco, on this journey with me! I chose to pursue postgraduate training because I wanted to bridge the overall gap between generalist PA training to that of a well-equipped critical care specialist. Critical care interests me specifically because it pairs two aspects of medicine that I find most compelling - patients with complex illnesses that represent the extremes of human disease and high adrenaline situations requiring quick thinking and stabilizing procedures. As a PA, I want to inspire compassion, education, and intervention, even in the most seemingly hopeless of times, as I can appreciate individual differences and share knowledge so that patients are well-equipped and able to lead healthier lives.
After residency, Aubrey accepted a position with the Mayo Clinic in Arizona.
