Family Medicine Residency Curriculum

Family Medicine Residency Curriculum


Peter Ham at DeskThe Family Medicine Residency program at the University of Virginia is designed to prepare the medical school graduate for the delivery of comprehensive health care to patients of all ages. Our residency has a strong base in medicine and pediatrics but also provides excellent training in obstetrics, gynecology, human behavior, sports medicine, and women's health.

Diverse elective opportunities are available and each resident is encouraged to develop areas of special interest, including training in women's health procedures, skin procedures and musculoskeletal procedures.

The underlying goal of the curriculum is to ensure that the graduate will be an outstanding family physician. The Curriculum Committee consisting of faculty and residents reassesses the curricula offerings on an ongoing basis.
