Virginia Commonwealth University’s Fairfax Family Medicine Residency Program has been named one of the top 10 residency programs in the South by Doximity, a social network exclusively for physicians.
More than 3,600 residency training programs were evaluated in the national and regional assessment that spanned 20 specialties and was based on more than 50,000 peer nominations from board-certified U.S. physicians.
The public ranking of medical training programs will be used by medical school graduates as a tool to help them choose a residency program.
“The VCU-Fairfax Family Medicine Residency has been an educational and practice innovator since its inception in 1972,” said Anton Kuzel, M.D., chair and professor in the Department of Family Medicine and Population Health, VCU School of Medicine.
Based at Inova Fairfax Hospital, the VCU-Fairfax Family Medicine Residency Program is nationally recognized for its innovative, longitudinal curriculum and on-site resources in behavioral medicine and clinical research.
