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.

For This Pediatric Duo, It’s All About the Team

At the core of this team is an immense feeling of ownership and responsibility, an understanding that, in a sense, the young people they’re caring for are their own. And the elation they experience when the child pulls through—Gangemi and L’Ecuyer say that language simply doesn’t do it justice.
