Our Fellows

Joshua Reyes, MD, PGY- 6

Hi everyone! Welcome to UVA Pediatrics! My name is Josh, and I’m very excited that you are considering UVA for your pediatric fellowship. I’ve completed both medical school and residency at UVAs. The program here is home to some of the best people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting and working with. The faculty has an unwavering commitment to teaching and creating an environment that is both productive for work and learning. The residents and fellows here are amazing people, and it really is like a big family.

And, where else could be a nicer place to live? Charlottesville has a perfect balance of entertainment, food, and outdoor activities. The food scene is great, and I love that I can go on a hike in the morning, and come back to a craft brewery or winery in the evening. There’s lots of other entertainment as well, and things have adapted nicely to the new normal. Basically, Charlottesville has something for everyone – all you have to do is look!


Ruby R. Tan MD , PGY - 4

My name is Ruby. I joined UVA’s Developmental-Behavioral Pediatric Fellowship program in January 2023 after practicing general pediatrics in Maine, Richmond, VA, and recently at Kenner Army Health Clinic at Fort Gregg-Adams. I completed my residency at Baylor Scott and White Hospital in Temple, Texas after finishing medical school at the University of the East and receiving a B.S. degree in Psychology at the University of the Philippines.

Going back to training felt right at this stage of my career after realizing the enormous need for more specialists to care for children with developmental and behavioral disabilities. At UVA Dev Peds, I receive clinical training from supportive attendings and acquire learning experiences from a diverse patient population of infants, children, and young adults. The program also provides mentored research opportunities for each trainee’s chosen area of interest. My current research project is focused on the diagnostic evaluation of Autism Spectrum Disorder and how this relates to clinicians’ diagnostic certainty.

Charlottesville is also a neat place to explore. It has nature trails and rolling hills to hike, college-town energy, restaurants to enjoy, and lots of stimulating intellectual and cultural life to celebrate. Stay interested in our Dev Peds program here at UVA. Here is a great place to learn and live.
