Dear readers: Anton Kuzel, M.D., M.H.P.E.

Welcome to the residency pages for the Department of Family Medicine and Population Health at VCU.

One of the unique and exciting features of family medicine at VCU is that our programs are not attached to our large tertiary medical center, but are unique and individualized sites around the state of Virginia. Each program trains its graduates to practice across the full spectrum of potential practice sites, but we have programs that appeal to a wide variety of students with individual personal interests. Do you want to be a rural doctor with the joys associated of life in a small town? Then the Shenandoah residency is the place for you. Or, are you looking for a suburban practice close to a major metropolitan area? Our Fairfax and Riverside programs fit the bill. In addition, residents in both the St. Francis and Chesterfield programs enjoy suburban southern communities just outside the state capital. All of our programs provide strong academics, committed faculty and exciting colleagues, each with a unique personality and setting.

Please spend time on each of the individual sites that are provided here so that you can appreciate the differences in our programs. Get to know the faculty and residents from their profiles and consider applying to all that appeal to you.

If we can be of any assistance in the central office, feel free to contact me at any time at akuzel@mcvh-vcu.edu.

We look forward to hearing from you.
