Family Medicine Residency Program


The University of Virginia Family Medicine residency program offers a well-balanced, varied curriculum, where professional development goes along with personal growth.

The curriculum emphasizes become an outstanding clinician, along with development of skills in leadership, quality improvement and evidence-informed decision making.







Compassion, respect, excellence and wholeness are strongly held values.  These, and the collegiality between faculty and residents, provide the conditions for growth and learning in a personal atmosphere.

We value diversity in our community and in our department, and our working to increase diversity among our faculty and residents. We work hard to support our residents’ wellness and personal growth, in addition to their professional growth.






Charlottesville was settled in the eighteenth century on a hill overlooking the Rivanna River. It was named in honor of Queen Charlotte, the young wife of George III, and serves as the seat of Albemarle County. The town is nestled between the Blue Ridge Mountains and the Appalachian Trail to the north and Monticello, home of Thomas Jefferson, to the south. Today, Charlottesville is a thriving small city that offers residents plentiful opportunities for fun and relaxation.
