Spring is here and I hope all of you are enjoying some time outside while at the same time ensuring that you stay safe and well. This is a special issue of Medicine Matters as we say farewell to many of our trainees who have worked so hard to further the mission of the University of Virginia. A special thanks to our Chief Residents who have worked tirelessly over the past year, their dedication and passion are much appreciated. We have several things to celebrate this month: our 5th straight Mulholland Award which is given by the medical students to the Department with the best teaching as well as the winners in our annual Scholar’s Research Day.
Finally, this month we highlight the Division of Cardiovascular Medicine under the leadership of Dr Christopher Kramer. The Division provides world-class care across the entire discipline of cardiology as well as being a leader in education and research. In addition, you will read about their community involvement as well as international outreach. I encourage you to learn more about their research in valvular disease, exercise, medical analytics, vascular disease, and electrophysiology. It is an impressive portfolio and my thanks to all of the faculty, fellows, and staff of the Division.
