Residency Curriculum


The Family Medicine Residency program at the University of Virginia is designed to prepare the medical school graduate for the delivery of comprehensive health care to patients of all ages in a variety of settings. Our residency has a strong base in medicine and pediatrics but also provides excellent training in behavioral health, gender health, sports medicine, obesity medicine, maternity care and women’s health. Our residents learn the dermatologic, musculoskeletal and women’s health procedures essential to the practice of Family Medicine.

Diverse elective opportunities are available and each resident is encouraged to develop areas of special interest.

The underlying goal of the curriculum is to ensure that the graduate will be an outstanding family physician.
