Resident Spotlight- Caitlin Iorio, MD

Dr. Iorio is one of our exceptional PGY-4 chiefs! She hails from Lancaster, SC from a family full of very strong women. She completed her undergraduate studies at The University of South Carolina followed by medical school at the Medical University of South Carolina before gracing her presence at The University of Virginia.

Some fun facts about her are that she was born at 28 weeks and that she has met Dave from the Dave Matthews Band! In her free time, she likes playing soccer, spending time with family and friends, and traveling. She will be heading into a Facial Plastics Fellowship after she completes residency, and we are so excited for her!

When asked why she chose UVA ENT, Dr. Iorio says she came to UVA for the amazing Residents and the family dynamic that exists amongst them. Residency is hard so it’s a lot more fun to do it with people you like!
