Internship is an exciting time in which residents begin to apply concepts learned in medical school while simultaneously developing practical skills needed to perform in clinical medicine. In the outpatient continuity clinic and on the units, the intern is the patient's primary physician. As the patient's primary physician, the intern has the most in-depth knowledge of the patient and is most closely involved in delivering the high quality of care for which UVA is known.
