"Training at the University of Virginia has been, in a word, fantastic. Charlottesville is a great place to call home. We’re surrounded by beauty in every direction. The mountains and rivers offer tremendous hiking and camping. The diversity of restaurants, brewpubs and (to our surprise) vineyards is enormous. Working at UVA is an amazing experience. Our faculty members are the most supportive, knowledgeable and passionate people you could imagine working with. Their dedication to their fields as well as to resident education is something that makes our training program unique."

It begins with your colleagues

At the University of Virginia, you'll find some of the most highly motivated pediatric residents in the nation. Many chose the University Children's Hospital because of its reputation as a great place to learn and grow with other residents in a supportive atmosphere. Walk through a typical day with them, and you'll discover why they're glad they made that choice.

An environment of learning

An outstanding faculty with a commitment to teaching is at the core of our residency in pediatrics. When they're not at your side, they're just a phone call or email away. With rotations through a variety of subspecialties such as cardiology, immunology, and neurology, you'll gain the confidence to handle the unexpected variety you'll face even in a general practice.

A great place to live

This is one place people from all over the world love to call home.
