Lena Turkheimer, MD

1st Year Resident
Medical School: Virginia Tech Carilion


I was born and raised in Charlottesville and am so excited to be back here for residency. I am pretty convinced there isn’t a better place to live! After going to UVA for undergrad, I moved to New York City to work as a research assistant before medical school. I rotated at UVA as a fourth year medical student and immediately knew that I wanted to end up training here. I loved how friendly the residents were and how close they seemed with each other!
