New Faculty Orientation (NFO) is an important component of acclimating to EVMS as a faculty member. This program aims to present new faculty with information essential to their academic roles, academic success and advancement. New faculty learn about resources available at EVMS to support their academic endeavors. It takes place two times a year on the EVMS campus.

The videos below provide a quick overview of a number of institutional services to support our faculty.
