Esprit de Corps

What makes UVA special is the intangible sense of community and camaraderie that exists amongst our residents and faculty. The program prides itself in being a resident run program, with ideas for change coming directly from the residents who are at the bedside day in and day out. As a result there is an amazing sense of ownership and investment in the program that is reflected in how residents describe their experiences and reasons for choosing UVA.  As you read through this site, you will read several of their testimonials to their experience in the program.

The esprit de corps at UVA will grab your attention on interview day and never let go! This is evidenced by the sheer numbers of our residents who have stayed on as faculty or those who have left UVA only to return at a later time to make Charlottesville their home again. Your co-residents quickly become more than colleagues; they become your friends and your second family. Just take a stroll on the downtown mall or visit Carter Mountain Orchard on a Thursday evening, and you are bound to run into a group of residents enjoying Charlottesville together.  We hope that you will consider joining the UVA residency family!
