Welcome - A Message from our Chair

Welcome to the University of Virginia Department of Neurology education page. We invite you to explore our neurology residency and fellowship programs at the University of Virginia. It is our mission to promote an environment founded upon the education and training of our residents and fellows, focusing on the quality of patient care, trainee well-being, and professional development. We serve a diverse patient population and value diversity in our training programs. Our training programs are designed to provide the necessary acumen for all aspects of a career in neurology, including proficiency in the neurological exam, localization of disease, the neurological formulation, exposure to clinical and basic science research, evidence-based practice, team building, and leadership. By this foundation, we hope to inspire our neurologists towards a successful career of their choosing, whether as clinician, scientist, and/or educator, and encourage them to practice by the ideals of our program inspiring future generations to come.
