If you like high job stress and disrespect this is your employer
Administration (Former Employee) – Medical center – May 20, 2018
Unfortunately much of ones experience depends on skill level and emotional intelligence of your manager, which is not prevalent at any level of management. It is a caste system - if you're an MD, direct health care provider or upper mngmt you can behave badly without consequence. Otherwise you will not be valued or respected.

All places could use improvement when it comes to the workplace. This place is no different. A typical day is busy, which is a plus for me. But there is a lack of checks and balances in some areas that could make things better.
N/A (Current Employee) – Charlottesville, VA – April 2, 2018
UVA is full of opportunities and it is a great place to learn to advance ones career. Management will vary based on department and service line so I can only comment on what I know. My manager is lacking in visibility and availability, even at a Director level. (I've heard this is typical of directors and not as much of administrators.) UVA could provide more options to work from home as many of their employees commute 30 minutes to an hour from home. Devoting to better patient care would include investing in the well-being of employees and allowing them opportunities to enhance work-life balance, even for those that don't have direct patient care responsibilities. As with any organization, there are opportunities, strengths, and weaknesses. Would be beneficial to have someone bridge the disconnect between departments

UVA Health system is not only a great place to work but a great place to grow. We were always treated well and with great respect. Only con is having to ride the bus since there isnt parking on location.
Outpatient Imaging Center was a great place to work..
Diagnostic Radiologic Technologist (Former Employee) – Charlottesville, VA 22903 – February 16, 2018
I worked at an outpatient imaging center for about 8 months. I worked at the main Medical Center for 14 years. The outpatient imaging center was a great place to work. The Manager and Chief Technologist were excellent to work for and my co-workers were a lot of fun. However, the radiology department at the Medical Center was a very high stress area. The lead technologist in the department is very rude and seemed to belittle fellow technologists. Department morale was very low and several technologists have left to go to other departments in the hospital or have left altogether. I would not recommend anyone working in the main radiology department under those situations. You should enjoy your job, not go home stressed every day and dreading going to work.
Outpatient imaging center is great!
Radiology department at main hospital is stressful and morale is very low.
Systems Engineer (Current Employee) – Charlottesville, VA – February 11, 2018
I've been working at the UVA Health System for over 20 years. While it is an excellent place to work, I am looking for a change of pace and scenery. Nevertheless, I would recommend it as a place for long term employment.
Patient Access Associate (Former Employee) – Charlottesville, VA – January 4, 2018
UVA was the best place I have ever worked. I really miss the culture, the pride, the unity, everything! The school community itself is great and working for a top hospital is honorable. Pay is good and when problems arise, they get addressed professionally.
We are researching very interesting topics related to the nature of the mind/body relationship.
Research Coordinator I (Current Employee) – Charlottesville, VA – December 15, 2017
I enjoy the wide variety of tasks and duties I have in my job. The subject matter is endlessly interesting and I have a flexible schedule. There are ample opportunities to meet very interesting and unusual people in this job.
I have an excellent amount of vacation time.
I would like to enjoy a substantial increase in my salary.
Registered Nurse Care Coordinator (Current Employee) – Charlottesville, VA – October 9, 2017
Overall, UVA Medical Center was a great place to work. As an academic medical center, they care about your educational advancement and research ideas. Decently adequate PTO and insurances are rather cheap for a single person. Wonderful place to begin a career.
Worked as RN in STICU for 6 years- will never find a better place to learn
Registered Nurse (Current Employee) – Charlottesville, VA – August 11, 2017
An incredible variety of patient populations, something I've never seen elsewhere. The Nurse and Attending relationship is phenomenal- half of rounds our attendings just watch the RN to confirm the report of the resident. Very receptive to a collaborative approach and supportive of nursing research
Best team you'll ever work with
Very tasking job from a work load/physical/emotional standpoint
Manager, Epic Phase 2 Implementation Project (Current Employee) – Charlottesville, VA – July 27, 2017
Supportive environment if you want to learn all you can and have opportunities for growth. Hard to get permanent employment with the University of Virginia but once you are in, it is easy to meet new people and build a supportive resource group.
