Departments

The University of Virginia School of Medicine has a long tradition of excellence in a highly collaborative atmosphere. We find innovative ways to improve health by resting on the firmest of foundations: the pyramid of education, research, patient care, and service to the community. The structure is so strong because each part of the pyramid contributes to the other: we teach students in the health professions at all levels—including our colleagues—and at the same time learn from all of them, making patient care better; we advance knowledge through research at the fundamental level and translate that research for the benefit of our patients; we treat each of our patients with compassion and respect; and not only make the community healthier, we also serve as volunteers and advisers to the Commonwealth and the nation.
