Career Development and Fellowships
Fellowship Opportunities at UVA
The University of Virginia Department of Medicine offers Fellowship Training in more than ten specialties and subspecialties. For information about specific programs and the application process, please explore our UVA Medicine Fellowships site.
Whether you are planning to go into a medical subspecialty, or a career in general medicine as a hospitalist or primary care physician, our residency program helps prepare you for that next step.
Our Career Development Series offers unique seminars designed to guide you through the career choices you will face. Examples include: a panel of hospitalists answering questions about their choice of field, and a session with subspecialty program directors who will tell you what they really look for in a fellowship applicant.
Residents universally enjoy these seminars. Those entering fellowships say it reduces anxiety and makes it easier to manage the application and interview process. Third-year residents − who have most recently navigated through job and fellowship applications − take a special leadership and mentoring role, providing invaluable "real-world" experience.
Life After Residency
One of the hallmarks of excellence in our residency program is the number of UVA residents who are accepted to nationally-acclaimed fellowship programs. Graduates from our program have gone on to pursue careers in both subspecialty and general internal medicine. A number of our residents choose to stay at UVA, which attests to the high resident satisfaction with the hospital system and the quality of life in Charlottesville. However, it should also be noted that our graduates have been accepted to programs that span the nation, from New York to Hawaii.
