At the University of Virginia School of Medicine we strive to be our local community’s provider of choice for its healthcare needs, a national leader in quality, patient safety, service, and compassionate care, the leading provider of technologically-advanced, ground-breaking care throughout Virginia and leader in training students and faculty in providing health care free of disparity. All this while building on Mr. Jefferson's idea, that a free flowing exchange of ideas is best accomplished by having faculty and students living and learning side by side.
