Future residents

Dr. John Meriwether and Dr. Rebecca Witt  
We are very excited for the opportunity to be the Chief Medical Residents of the inaugural Inova Fairfax Internal Medicine Residency class. Residents at the Inova Fairfax Medical Campus are educated by an attentive, congenial, and, most importantly, intelligent team in the Department of Medicine. The attending faculty, nursing teams, and ancillary staff are all a joy to work alongside. The patient population cared for at this hospital is diverse. Residents gain knowledge in treating common illnesses as well as rare conditions. They also have exposure to heart and lung transplant patients. The modern, renovated campus provides an excellent working environment. Combined, these factors result in a superb educational environment in which an internal medicine physician-in-training can thrive.

We look forward to meeting you and good luck on the interview trail!
