Life After Residency

The pediatric residency program at the University of Virginia will give you all the tools you need to move on to the next step in your career. We have placed former residents in many private practices, public health, professorships and more.

If you would like to hear first hand from a former resident, we will get you in touch with one in your area. Our residents come from all over and head out to places far and wide when their residency has ended. Talk to one near you.
