Dr. Jared Astrow

2022-23 Fellow, PM&R

“Hello all. I’m Jared Astrow, DO. I grew up in Fairfax, Virginia with my parents, brother and sister after moving from San Mateo, California at a young age. I attended Virginia Tech (don’t hold it against me), where I earned a degree in Psychology and began my interest in studying ways to improve an individual’s wellbeing. After a year at the Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine (LECOM) in Erie, PA in the Post-Baccalaureate program, I headed for warmer weather for medical school in Bradenton, Florida to study at LECOM’s southern campus. Throughout medical school I developed specific interests in treating individuals with neurological and musculoskeletal diseases. I then found myself gravitating towards a residency in the field of physical medicine and rehabilitation that combined both interests. While working as a resident at the MedStar Georgetown/NRH program I continued to build my clinical interests in the musculoskeletal system focusing on injury prevention and rehabilitation. I am elated that these cumulative experiences have brought me to the University of Virginia. I am looking forward to immersing myself in sports medicine and working diligently to improve the lives of athletes and active individuals.

 All my life, I have been drawn to athletics and sports. I grew up as a gymnast, and now find myself enjoying the recreational team sports that are offered in Arlington, where I live with my longtime girlfriend, a high school choral director in the area. In my spare time I enjoy running club, reading, cooking, traveling, rock climbing, hiking, tennis and soccer.”
