Instead, EVMS works in partnership with hospitals, physicians, and clinics throughout the region, providing students and residents with a broad base of clinical experience. For the region as a whole, these educational partnerships spread the benefits of an academic medical center throughout the region, improving the quality of life and the quality of health care for the entire community.
