UVA Surgery resident Andrew Hawkins

Surgery Resident
Medical School: Boston University


I grew up outside New York City and went to both undergrad and medical school in Boston, Massachusetts. I have been accepted to the 4+3 combined general surgery and cardiothoracic training program here at UVA and intend to specialize in general thoracic surgery.  My research interests include data science, robotic surgery, clinical outcomes and applications of artificial intelligence in surgery. UVA originally attracted me because it felt like a smaller more intimate program that would allow for longitudinal relationships with faculty but also gave residents research opportunities that rivaled larger programs. When I was interviewing, I also sought out a community of people who would support me through the ups and downs of surgery residency. Both of these have come true during my time here. When I am not working I enjoy hanging with my wife and our daughter who is our wonderful new addition to our family. I also enjoy rock climbing, surfing, skiing, live music, enjoying a cold glass of beer and finding new places to eat.
