The University of Virginia Department of Medicine consists of a diverse group of faculty, staff and trainees that are dedicated to our tripartite mission of providing outstanding care, advancing medical knowledge and educating the next generation of clinicians. In addition, we strive to be productive members of our larger community and give back to our local region through our care and volunteer efforts. We achieve these goals with a spirit of cooperation, collegiality and mutual respect that values the contributions of every individual.
