Professional Advisory Group

Members of the Professional Advisory Group provide didactics, conduct admissions and exit interviews, and are available for student consultation, as needed. Members include professionals from the Medical Center and Charlottesville Community as well as committed members of the wider community. They meet 2-3 times per year as a group to offer feedback on the department and to provide support. Various members also help with interviews for prospective residents and with exit interviews for current residents.
