Graduate Medical Education Policy Statement
Hampton Roads has a population of 1.7 million and is the seventh largest metro in the Southeast United States. The resident physicians of Eastern Virginia Medical School thrive by learning from the wide spectrum of multiracial and ethnic, socioeconomic, and diverse life experiences of our patients. We are guided by the EVMS diversity statement, “We strive to attract talented students, trainees, faculty, staff, and leaders who bring diverse attributes and experiences to drive our collective commitment to excellence”. Our programs promote a workplace of inclusiveness, which fosters creativity, teamwork, culturally sensitive patient care, and an enriching training environment. We are committed to recruiting applicants who are underrepresented in medicine and are responsive to the needs of our community.
