Geographically, UVA is set in a smaller city with a country feel, yet it is also a major tertiary care center serving much of central and south/southwest Virginia, providing exposure to plenty of "bread and butter" medicine, with a steady stream of "zebra" pathology transferred in from outlying communities. We have patients from all socioeconomic levels, rural, suburban, and urban environments, as well as a wide variety of cultural and ethnic backgrounds. This diversity allows for a rich clinical experience in our practice and helps prepare you to better care for a wide variety of patients.
