Dr. Ben Skinker has returned to his home state of Virginia to again work for the Virginia Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services. He is employed at the Northern Virginia Mental Health Institute System in Fairfax at their Primary Care Division. Dr. Skinker served as the Medical Director for UPMC Shadyside Family Health Center and was the Director of the Underserved Track. He is an alumnus of our residency program (Class of 1994). Not only was Dr. Skinker an outstanding clinician, mentor to our residents, and teacher, but he truly epitomized what it means to be a family physician. We wish Dr. Skinker the best in all his future endeavors and we will miss him!
