Resident Testimonial - Dr. Waheed


"UVA is such an incredible place. This program really stood out on the interview trail as the residents clearly had fun together and also had absolutely phenomenal clinical knowledge. The didactic sessions are considered as important to the resident’s education as the clinical training. I loved how the didactic sessions were interactive, intellectually stimulating, and full of laughter (you would never be tempted to hide in the corner surfing the internet on your smartphone)!

Most importantly, I was also impressed by the supportive and vibrant academic environment here. I can always page my fellows or attendings directly if I ever have a question. Our faculty and fellows always find ways to add quick teaching points on each of our patients when we round. I have always found the faculty, chiefs, and fellow interns/residents to have the attitude of "How can I help you?" towards the patients and housestaff.

It's amazing to live in Charlottesville! Whenever I leave the hospital, I am instantly refreshed by seeing the beautiful foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Within 2 miles of the hospital, I've found amazing running trails and great restaurants for sit down (and take away, too). Whenever family and friends visit from North Carolina, we always have plenty to do between visiting UVA's campus, Monticello, the downtown mall, hiking, tubing, kayaking, and eating out."
