University of Virginia School of Medicine Review
The University of Virginia School of Medicine is a 4-year MD-granting program that welcomed its first class in 1827. It is the tenth oldest medical school in the U.S. The University of Virginia School of Medicine is opening a regional campus in Inova within the next few years. With the changing landscape of medicine, the University of Virginia School of Medicine switched to an integrated curriculum. Students are actively involved on campus—some participate in sports, and others work on Veritas, a creative magazine published by students. There are two clinics students can volunteer at, Charlottesville Free Clinic and the Remote Area Clinic. In addition, the School of Medicine puts on something called Mini Med School that is open to anyone in the community who wants to learn more about medical school.
At the University of Virginia School of Medicine, our primary purpose is to educate and train physicians and scientists to help people achieve healthy, productive lives and to advance knowledge in the medical sciences.
