University of Virginia Intern Class '21

Our Current CA2 Resident Class

About

Our residency program is dedicated to educating the next generation of leaders in our field of anesthesiology.  We currently have 62 residents in our program:  12 CA0s (Interns); 16 CA1s; 16 CA2s; 18 CA3s.

The University of Virginia participates in the NRMP (National Resident Matching Program), accepting residency applications only through ERAS.  Our program is indexed on the AMA’s Fellowship and Residency Electronic Interactive Database Access (FREIDA).

We offer three tracks to apply to our Residency:

  • Categorical – 4 year (integrated intern year with 5 months of intraoperative anesthesia in the PGY 1 year, off service intern months spread throughout PGY1 and PGY2 years)
  • Advanced – 3 year (begin our program after completing a separate intern year)
  • RO/Reserved for Physician’s Only – 3 year (physicians who have completed an accredited intern year)

The University of Virginia Hospital is a Level I trauma center, with cases referred from a multi-state area.  For a number of years, the hospital has seen a steady increase in our CMI (Case Mix Index), and UVA possesses one of the top 10 highest CMI’s in the nation. The CMI of a hospital reflects the diversity, clinical complexity, and the needs for resources for all of the patients in the hospital. Our residents have the opportunity to provide anesthetics for a broad spectrum of complex cases, providing care for the region’s sickest patients.

Our training fully satisfies the requirements of the American Board of Anesthesiology for residency training in anesthesiology.  Over the course of the residency program, our residents will far exceed national required minimums. Our graduates go into private practice, fellowships, and academic positions–and to become leaders in the field.

The University of Virginia is consistently rated among the best public institutions in the country, achieving national stature for its teaching, research, and public service while maintaining the intimacy that characterized Thomas Jefferson’s original “Academical Village.”
