EVMS 50th Anniversary

This fall EVMS marks its first half century and the people who made it happen, honoring our legacy and future promise.

“The world has changed dramatically over the past 50 years, but our mission has remained the same: to be the most community-oriented school of medicine and health professions in the country.”

Alfred Abuhamad, MD
President, Provost and Dean of the EVMS School of Medicine
