- Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion
My name is Genna Petrey, I am a newly graduated Physician Assistant seeking training and clinical experience in my specialty of choice through the University of Kentucky Critical Care PA Academic Residency. I am from Winchester, KY, and obtained a Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Sciences at Morehead State University. I went on to obtain my Master of Science in Physician Assistant Studies here at UK. I knew from the beginning of PA school that I wanted to pursue a residency program. Critical Care really appeals to me because it is intellectually challenging with regard to the complexity of managing ICU patient care, while at the same time requiring providers to have a physical ability to perform high-acuity, life-saving procedures, often in an emergent setting. I will be challenged to learn and grow as a PA from the very beginning of my career. As a critical care PA resident, I will have the opportunity to impact the lives of patients and their families, potentially during one of the most vulnerable times in their lives. Being a healthcare provider is an awesome and intimidating responsibility, but I know that pursuing this residency will make me a better, more confident provider.
After residency, Genna was employed with UK Healthcare and accepted a position with the MICU at Good Samaritan Hospital.
