45 years living our vision

45 years living our vision The Hampton Roads community came together to bring EVMS to life. For 45 years, we've done our best to pay it forward.

Leaders in the effort to establish EVMS celebrate a fundraising milestone in community support for the school. They are former Congressman Porter Hardy, attorney Harry Mansbach, Dr. Mason Andrews and businessman Henry Clay Hofheimer.

Members of the inaugural MD class of EVMS celebrate their graduation in 1976. The class size has grown over the years from 24 in the charter class to 150 in the most recent class.

The world turns its attention to Norfolk, where the nation’s first child is born through the new science of in vitro fertilization. The success is the work of husband-and-wife pioneers Drs. Howard and Georgeanna Jones.

Instructor Terry Zablocki works with students in the Medical and Health Specialties Program at Maury High School, a collaboration with EVMS that recently marked its 30th anniversary.

EVMS leaders like to say that community service is in the school’s DNA. Student-led ventures like community care day bring medical and health professions students into the community and inspire children to seek medical and health careers.

EVMS becomes one of the first schools to use simulated patients for medical education. Today, the school continues to be a leader in medical modeling and simulation.

The distinctive rotunda of the EVMS library takes shape prior to the opening of the building in 2000. EVMS librarians not only work with physicians and students, they also help patients find information about their disease or details of the latest treatments.

A gift from philanthropists Macon and Joan Brock creates the M. Foscue Brock Institute for Community and Global Health at EVMS, paying tribute to Mr. Brock’s physician father.

President Richard Homan works arm and arm with new students during Community Impact Day. The annual event, held prior to the start of classes, introduces new students to the importance of community service.

EVMS research can have a global impact. For instance, Dr. Paul Marik may have found the first effective treatment for severe sepsis, a blood infection that kills 8 million people worldwide each year.
