Student Orientation

Student orientation is intended to acclimate our newest students to the EVMS campus. New student orientation is made up of two components: on-line orientation and on-campus orientation. On-line orientation must be completed prior to arriving to the on-campus orientation. On-line Orientation is located on myPortal.

Unless instructed otherwise, on-campus orientation is mandatory and an important first step in your education. Fall 2015, on-campus orientation is scheduled from August 7 until August 14 for medical, medical masters, PhD, research Masters, and biotech students.  On campus orientation for art therapy and counseling, MPH, and surgical assisting students will be held on August 20.  A detailed schedule of institutional and program specific events will be available on myPortal this summer. New students have an opportunity to meet classmates, faculty and staff at special events including: President's Picnic, Community Impact Day, Granby Street YMCA Pool party, and various other student-organized events. Students will also learn about being a member of the EVMS community. 

As always, EVMS faculty and staff are here to answer any questions you may have. It is our privilege to work with students like you, and we look forward to helping you embark on this journey. ‌Congratulations and welcome to the EVMS community.
