Student Health Insurance

Health insurance is MANDATORY for students (see 2013-2014 Doctor of Medicine Student Handbook).

The EVMS Student Wellness Program is made up of four separate parts which consist of the Primary Health Care, Student Mental Health, Occupational Health, and health insurance of the students’ choice. 

Primary Health Care, which is covered by your student fees and is offered independently from your health insurance, is supported by the EVMS Department of Family and Community Medicine.  Detailed information about these services is available by clicking on the link below
