Life at the School of Medicine

One campus. Two locations: Charlottesville and Northern Virginia. Students at UVA School of Medicine can expect an enriching experience regardless of which location. Both campuses offer unique experiences working with faculty, students and patients in two distinct locations.


Centrally located in the eastern foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Central Virginia, Charlottesville offers something for everyone. Foodies will enjoy the city’s renowned and high concentration of restaurants, wineries and breweries. Sports enthusiasts will enjoy the rivers, lakes and beautiful parks. The area boasts several championship golf courses designed by leading industry architects and a vibrant equestrian culture. The city’s historic attractions, such as Monticello, the Grounds of the University of Virginia and James Monroe’s Highland, have played a unique role in the history of the nation.

Northern Virginia - Inova

The UVA School of Medicine Inova Campus is located in Falls Church, Virginia about 16 miles west of Washington, DC. Falls Church boasts of a late 1600 Colonial history shared with Native Americans that has given rise to a modern 21st century city. Recreational opportunities are plentiful in northern Virginia, and area residents are in close proximity to both the Appalachian Mountains and the Atlantic coast. In addition, the nation’s capital can be easily accessed via the Capital Beltway Outer Loop 495 and the Dunn Loring Metro (Orange Line). The cultural and social opportunities available in D.C. are endless.
