Our Fellows

Julee Sunny, MD, PGY-6

Welcome to UVA Pediatric Gastroenterology! I was raised in Miami, Florida where I completed my medical school training at the Herbert Wertheim College of Medicine at Florida International University. My pediatric residency training was at Nicklaus Children’s Hospital. My fellowship interview day at UVA was during the COVID pandemic but despite the virtual platform, the friendliness and supportive nature of the faculty was readily evident. I immediately knew I would be able to find the mentorship that I was seeking here, and I am excited about the many opportunities for research and a wide range of clinical pathology.  I am looking forward to getting to know Charlottesville more and am already impressed with the breathtaking views and abundance of nature.



Norbert Donias, MD, PGY-4

I was raised in Houston, Texas, and completed my pediatric residency training at El Paso Children’s Hospital with Texas Tech. My fellowship interview day at UVA did not fill like an interview day at all, I immediately felt welcomed by everyone in the department. I came to UVA Pediatrics to get excellent training from exceptional physicians. Now that I have arrived at this facility, I love the atmosphere the fellows and the facility created around them. Something that always surprises everyone I meet is that I cannot swim.





Shreeya Chugh, MD, PGY-1

I am originally from the western part of India where I did my med school training. I finished my pediatric residency training at University of Missouri. The Pediatric Gastroenterology program at UVA has a perfect size for learning coupled with great training resources and opportunities for research. On my interview day at UVA, I immediately felt welcomed and at home. Everyone I have met so far has been very helpful and the faculty is easily approachable. While large cities and small towns have their own pros and cons, I believe that Charlottesville represents the best of both worlds: it offers vibe and amenities of a large city, and, at the same time, the charm of a small town. I am excited and looking forward to my training here.
