Life as a Resident
Residents and their families can expect a healthy work/life balance at UVA. We offer an excellent pediatric residency program in an environment that is friendly, safe and full of rich cultural opportunities.
Training is designed to provide an outstanding balance between general pediatrics and the pediatric subspecialties, including clinical and basic research. The result will give you confidence as a general practitioner as well as a strong background should you choose to pursue a specializiation or a career in academics.
"We looked at a lot of residency programs, but UVA was a perfect fit for us. We were so impressed that we just couldn't rank anywhere else higher. The chiefs have been very accommodating with our schedules and we have all our vacation time together (we're married and are both doing pediatrics). Charlottesville provides lots of recreational opportunities. We live near ponds and hiking trails, and have grown to love our beautiful surroundings."
