This month, I wanted to highlight our residency program in the Department of Medicine. This is the time of year when we interview prospective residents, and it offers an excellent opportunity to reflect on what makes our training programs so great. It starts with all of you and the fantastic teaching and mentorship that benefits our trainees. Year after year, residents praise the clinical teaching and opportunities to learn from you. In addition, the residents have a really special collegiality that affords them teaching from their colleagues as well as an esprit-de-corps that defines this as a unique training environment. Ultimately, we are so fortunate to work with a capable, caring, compassionate, and motivated group of residents that I am very proud of. I also want to highlight that the leadership of our residency program is top in the country. Led by Dr. Brian Uthlaut and his associate program directors (Drs. Rebecca Clemo, Jessica Dreicer, Drew Harris, Rachel Kon, Allison Lyons, Alex Millard, Jeff Sturek, and Andy Wolf) and supported by the world’s best administrative team (led by Joy Hilton), this group creates the curriculum and standards that make our program so outstanding. Lastly, thank you to everyone who takes part in the interview process. This is a critical part of recruiting the best candidates for UVA, and please consider spending some time as an interviewer.
This month in Medicine Matters, we highlight our largest Division, General Medicine, led by Dr. Mohan Nadkarni. General medicine is a highly diverse division and includes geriatrics, palliative care, hospital medicine, and general internal medicine. This group is the foundation for our Department and is distinguished by numerous programs of excellence and nationally recognized leaders in their areas of expertise. I am sure you will enjoy reading about this incredible group.
With best wishes,
