The University of Virginia Physicians Group (UPG) is a physician + provider-led, administratively supported group practice which operates for the benefit of the University, UVA Health, and UVA School of Medicine’s 21 clinical departments.
UPG is an independent 501(c)3 University Associated Organization (UAO), and is governed by its own Board of Directors with a public majority. As a separate employer, UPG offers a separate benefits package from UVA and the Medical Center and maintains separate benefit and leave policies.
The University of Virginia Physicians Group compares benefits and other aspects of the compensation package with those offered by other academic and healthcare organizations. We have found that these aspects of our total compensation package continue to meet or exceed what peer institutions provide, and we are committed to ongoing improvements. Whether it’s planning for your future or helping UVA Health advance its mission, UPG will continue to provide you with benefits and programs that enhance the value of your total compensation.
