All Are Welcome

We are committed to creating a learning environment where respect and tolerance prevail. We value differences in background, origin, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, age and beliefs in our residents and faculty, and consider them of highest importance in the creation of a space where we can learn from each other. Aligned with the mission of our institution, the Department of Radiology and Medical Imaging fosters an atmosphere of tolerance and free exchange of ideas, where we are personally and professionally enriched by our differences.

Reflected in our multicultural house staff is our belief that diversity allows us to provide the highest standards of quality care to our patients. UVA Radiology is proud to have a fund specifically devoted to supporting and increasing and Diversity and Inclusion in our residency programs.

UVA Radiology Residency Diversity Fund

We are fortunate to live in an equally inclusive community, which stands for respect of ideas regardless of their origin; home to a multicultural community, Charlottesville is a national example of strength and unity at times of adversity, and a place where we all feel safe and welcomed.

Diversity Days

The UVA Graduate Medical Education Committee is continuing this year to organize several GME-wide Diversity Days during the interview season, which can potentially coincide with your interview day. Typically these events would involve, either a morning or afternoon meal (depending on the date) with speakers from UVA and/or the Charlottesville community. Ample time to informally talk to these individuals (including faculty, housestaff, and medical students and community members) is built into the day. If this is important to your understanding of and interest in UVA please schedule yourself to interview on days that coordinate with these dates and plan your stay accordingly. You can read more about all the good work occurring at UVA in GME within this domain at the GME Diversity and Inclusion webpage.

The 2020-21 dates for these GME-wide programs are forthcoming.

Our IR-Integrated and DR residency programs offer unique opportunities to participate in activities through our Diversity and Inclusion initiative and the de Lange Diversity and Inclusion Fund.

For applicants with questions about interview dates or these programs, please email We would love for you to join us on any of these dates! For anyone who cannot accommodate one of these opportunities with their interview schedule, please know there are many housestaff and faculty that will welcome this discussion with you on any interview day.
