EVMS Through the Years
A generation ago, the people in Hampton Roads were extremely generous when they established this medical school in response to a physician shortage. With another physician shortage looming, we are relying on the community’s generosity once again. Our new building will provide much-needed space for 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. Thank you for supporting EVMS.
