Fellowship Opportunities at UVA
The University of Virginia Department of Medicine offers Fellowship Training in more than ten specialties and subspecialties. For information about specific programs and the application process, please explore our UVA Medicine Fellowships site.
Whether you are planning to go into a medical subspecialty, or a career in general medicine as a hospitalist or primary care physician, our residency program helps prepare you for that next step.
Our Career Development focus offers seminars and gatherings designed to guide you through the career choices you will face. Examples include: specialty interest groups to connect and network about research projects and mentors, panel discussions of physicians answering questions about their choice of field, and sessions with subspecialty program directors who will tell you what they really look for in a fellowship applicant. Residents universally enjoy these seminars. Those entering fellowships say it reduces anxiety and makes it easier to manage the application and interview process. Third-year residents − who have most recently navigated through job and fellowship applications − take a special leadership and mentoring role, providing invaluable “real-world” experience.
At UVA, you are surrounded by faculty who are supportive, accessible and excited to support you in your research and career development, and the program has built in advising support to ensure that no resident falls through the cracks and that all get the support they need in this area.
Life After Residency
Year after year, our ABIM board pass rate ranks at the top of the country, currently 100% over the last 3 years (tests taken 2015-2017). At UVA, there are board review conferences in the spring of each year helping to prepare residents for this stage in their transition to board certification in internal medicine.
One of the hallmarks of excellence in our residency program is the number of UVA residents who are accepted to nationally-acclaimed fellowship programs. Graduates from our program have gone on to pursue careers in both subspecialty and general internal medicine. A number of our residents choose to stay at UVA, which attests to the high resident satisfaction with the hospital system and the quality of life in Charlottesville. However, it should also be noted that our graduates have been accepted to programs that span the nation and regularly match at one of their top choices.
