The University of Virginia was created with the ideals of shared learning and enlightened thought. Training in our department combines the best of what university and community settings have to offer. We feature a challenging and comprehensive curriculum, with all the specialty services and resources available in a Top 100 quaternary care center. Outpatient clinical experiences are offered in a variety of nearby community settings for residents who choose to focus on urban/suburban, rural, or global health. Nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains two hours southwest of Washington, D.C., Charlottesville is both cosmopolitan and relaxed. The natural beauty of the area can be enjoyed year-round.
