RYPE 'N RVA

Are you a physician new to Richmond or new-to-newish in practice? (Loosely defined as first 10 years in practice.)

Then you will want to get plugged in to RYPE ‘N RVA!

Known as “RYPE ‘N RVA” for short, our leadership team of early-career and new-to-Richmond physicians was created with the purpose of providing resources (personal and professional) specific to early-career and new-to-RVA RAM members. The group seeks to provide a forum for discussion for these members to engage with and remain connected with one another. 

Would you like to take a more active role in planning activities for this group? Contact Kate Gabriel at kgabriel@ramdocs.org or (804) 622-8133 to learn more.
