Family Medicine

Department of Family Medicine

Family Medicine offers primary care for patients of all ages. UVA doctors are board certified in Family Medicine and have advanced training in women’s health, sports medicine and geriatrics.

In addition, our department has a tradition of excellence in medical education, and we offer medical students a variety of exciting programs. We also offer a Family Medicine Residency Program, a Sports Medicine Fellowship, and a Faculty Development Fellowship.

Our principle mission is to help students learn how to be caring, competent physicians, through involvement in all levels of the curriculum.
