Homan, MD, President and Provost of EVMS and Dean of the School of Medicine. This proposal offers an opportunity to a do a “hard reset” on the process and provide a framework and starting point for EVMS, Sentara, and Old Dominion University to begin anew discussions about closer alignment and partnerships.
