Admissions and Enrollment Mission Statement
In keeping with the mission of Eastern Virginia Medical School of creating and fostering a diverse student body, the mission of the Admissions Office is to recruit and admit for the Schools of Medicine and Health Professions a qualified student population who come with diverse backgrounds, attributes, and experiences.
EVMS Admissions will recruit future students including women, those who are traditionally underrepresented in medicine including ethnic and racial minorities, veterans and those with military affiliations, those from rural areas, and from disadvantaged backgrounds. We will utilize a holistic process in the consideration of applicants including prior academic achievement and other non-cognitive factors such as altruism, compassion, and empathy.
We will strive to provide outstanding service to prospective students, current students, and alumni by communicating the admissions procedures, requirements, and standards. The Admissions Office will employ admission processes grounded in integrity, efficiency, and transparency.
