We offer a teaching program with a long tradition of developing physicians of the highest caliber who excel in all aspects of researchand patient care. Our program is one of the strongest in the nation and attracts a large number of highly competitive applicants from across the country.

The Department of Medicine is the largest and most clinically active within the University of Virginia Health System. We serve the medical needs of Virginia and large portions of the surrounding states. Because we are also a national and international referral center, our residents are exposed to the entire range of internal medicine.

The faculty of the Department of Medicine devotes a major effort to teaching. This is regarded as an integral component of our mission along with clinical care and research. Divisions within the Department are nationally known for their clinical achievements and research interests. Included among them are general medicine, primary care, geriatrics, palliative care, gastroenterology, cardiology, endocrinology and metabolism, nephrology, pulmonology, hematology-oncology, and infectious diseases and international medicine. Their accolades are reflected by the high level of external research funding the Department has received. All attendings are UVA Faculty and so our residents interact daily on the wards and in the clinics with national leaders in medicine.

In addition to these strengths, the residents and interns within our program have established an esprit de corps and climate for learning that has remained a vital and unique part of the program for more than 30 years.

The residency program in Internal Medicine at the University of Virginia offers you world-class academic clinical training. The curriculum has been made to be flexible to help you design an individualized curriculum. Abundant opportunities exist to participate in bench and clinical research, to obtain a master's in clinical research, or to pursue clinical and research interests in international health.
