Overall Summary
  • - The teaching, especially 1st and 2nd year. The location is great, and you have time to enjoy it. The cohesiveness and cooperativity amongst students and less cut-throat environment for learning. You get to know your professors really well, and the school will do just about anything to help you. - The support for Primary Care training is good. The faculty are, by and large, caring and concerned. Involvement in direct patient care and clinical training starts in the first year. The use of standardized patients who are well trained right here is priceless! (especially for learning the genital exams) - Family environment - Very supportive of non-traditional students. Focus on learning and early patient contact. Many opportunites to volunteer and help the community. - Openness between the students and faculty EVMS is a fun place to be! - The positive attitudes of the faculty, staff and students alike.

12. What do you like least about your school?
Overall Summary
  • - Nothing really. Only problem may be lack of recognition amongst students at other schools, but I've had no problems getting residency interviews. - There seems to be an increasing pressure on the teaching faculty to bring in research money and the subsequent changes are slowly changing the environment. - Norfolk isn't the best city for a single black female! - No scholarship help. Major money wasted leading to increasing tuition and fees. Mediocre clinical experiences. - High cost of tuition - The Cost, Out of State tuition and the accumulations of loans is worrisome.

13. Please share any other thoughts you may have about your school.
Overall Summary
  • - Great place to be, 100 students per class allows you to get to know everyone, more one-on-one with anyone, and you don't feel lost. Also great place for primary care if you like that sort of thing, but many other specialties very well represented. Clinically, pediatrics, surgery, internal medicine, and family medicine very strong during 3rd year, and many other specialties like emergency medicine fantastic. Almost all professors are great teachers, board preparation not a problem, I did really really well. I love my school, I would come here again in a heartbeat. In fact, it would be really hard to leave for residency. - EVMS remains a wonderful school, especially if you are planning to go into a primary care field. - Excellent opportunity for the primary care focused individual. Very family friendly. If you are looking to become a neurosurgeon or dermatologist, it can happen, but you may want to consider a school with a more well known reputation, even if you may not be as happy there. - At EVMS we do great work. In my time here, the great board scores and great match rates have impressed me, but more importantly our school produces great physicians.
