Sovah Medical Residency

Making Communities Healthier in Southside Virginia.

welcome

Welcome to Sovah Medical Residency in Danville, Virginia!

We are located at Sovah Health - Danville, an academic community health care facility that is part of the Duke/LifePoint HealthCare network. Our resident physicians provide comprehensive medical care for many of the underserved patients in the Danville region and receive exceptional training in ambulatory and inpatient medicine. Our Family Medicine and Internal Medicine residency program directors work together to ensure that our residents do not have to compete for patients or procedures. The residency programs provide patient-centric teaching that emphasizes practice-based learning, evidence-based medicine, and professional development.

“I love the way the residents, faculty, program directors, and coordinators all work together at Sovah. I’ve never had so many people who care about me, both professionally and personally. Although residency has been hard work, we’ve had fun while learning. I feel like I’ve been thoroughly prepared for fellowship, and I’m glad I did my residency at Sovah. I wouldn’t have wanted to be anywhere else!”
