Caroline Allen, MD

2023-24 Fellow, Family Medicine

Hi everyone., I’m Caroline. I’m originally from Winchester, VA located in Northern Virginia. I went to Virginia Tech for college and Wake Forest for medical school. I finished my residency in Family Medicine at Fairfax Family Practice recently, where I discovered my passion for sports medicine. I’ve been an athlete my whole life and am excited to work with this population.

Outside of sports medicine, my interests in medicine also lie with the LGBTQ+ population and women’s health.

I also loves dogs and have two─a German Shepherd and a German Shepherd mix. My husband and I  like to take them camping, hiking, and love to socialize with other dog parents.

I’m very excited to move to the Charlottesville area to take advantage of the various trails, shopping, and to work with the amazing sports medicine community in the area!

2024-25 Fellow, Family Medicine

“Hello! I’m from the upstate of South Carolina, just outside of Greenville. My academic journey led me to Clemson University for my undergraduate studies (Go Tigers!), followed by a quick detour to Colorado. I returned to South Carolina for medical school at the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC), and residency at AnMed.

I chose the fellowship at UVA for several reasons. I was impressed by the opportunity to learn from a diverse group of five Primary Care Sports Medicine faculty members, each contributing their unique academic and personal perspectives. The sports coverage opportunities also stood out, with unparalleled exposure to Division I athletes, under the supervision of UVA’s core faculty members. Lastly, I was drawn to the scheduling flexibility, which allowed me to tailor my schedule to align with my career goals.

Outside of medicine I find joy in quality time spent with family and friends. My personal interests encompass various outdoor pursuits, including hiking, skiing, and golfing (albeit poorly). My wife, Carly, and I are excited for our next chapter at UVA, and look forward to calling Charlottesville home!”
