Eastern Virginia Medical School Review
Eastern Virginia Medical School is a 4-year MD-granting program that welcomed its first class in 1973. EVMS has adopted a new curriculum called CareForward that helps address how to care for the aging population in the U.S. The curriculum includes care-based teaching and focuses on active learning. Students participate in service learning, which models community engagement and provides a learning experience at the same time. Students can participate in various service-learning options, including working with the elderly, helping run a clinic, or working with various other issues: health inequities, infectious diseases, nutrition and wellness, and international inequities. EVMS wants to make sure all students’ goals are met, so every third-year medical student has a meeting with the Vice Dean.
