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.
