The University of Virginia provides a location where there are immense practice opportunities. As a Level 1 trauma center and tertiary referral center, the University allows access to extraordinary pathology. As an emergency department located in the heart of Charlottesville, residents experience typical cases consistent with everyday practice. A cutting edge emergency ultrasound program, state-of-the-art simulation center, and international opportunities are just some of the possibilities residents can discover during their time at UVA. With nationally recognized educators, residents have access to a multitude of regional and national academic opportunities.
Our residents are well prepared to pursue community practice or academic medicine. To allow freedom in their pursuit of education, residents have the opportunity to develop specialized training in their area of interest with our unique “track” system. This system allows residents to hone their skills in an area of interest before entering community practice or pursue an avenue that leads to a fellowship or academic career.
