The University of Virginia School of Medicine was envisioned and established in 1819 by Thomas Jefferson, the third President of the United States. Mr. Jefferson believed that a free flowing exchange of ideas was best accomplished by having faculty and students living and learning side by side. The “Academical Village” reflects this philosophy and it continues to be one of the tenets of our approa...ch to medical education. The School of Medicine was one of the first 8 schools within the University.
