Invest in the future of healthcare

A generation ago, the people of Hampton Roads were extremely generous when they established EVMS in response to a physician shortage. With another physician shortage looming, we are relying on the community’s generosity once again. Deliver on the Promise – The Campaign for EVMS will address priorities critical to the growing number of physicians and health professionals that we train. Every gift made to EVMS is an investment in the future of healthcare in Hampton Roads.

"In 2021, I received the Thomas M. and Angela Taylor Health Professions Scholarship that covered all my tuition for two years. It makes me feel like this is my purpose, like God is telling me, 'You're where you are supposed to be.'"

“We still have a lot of work to do to improve health equities, to train a superb cohort of students and residents, and really provide the community what is needed to advance care around us. We cannot do this without you and your support”
