8-24-16: Meal Card tips -

  • The cards are reloadable.  At the end of each academic year, the trainee’s card will be reloaded with their new amount on it.  Any money leftover will roll over to the next year. (example: $20 remains and $200 is added - New amount: $220)
  • The cards are magnetize.  Just like hotel keys, try not to put them near your cellphone and such
  • If a card needs to be replaced, the trainee is to see the cafeteria manager Larry for assistance.
  • And please assist us in keeping the cost down by collecting the cards at the end of your trainee’s educational experience. This applies to EVMS trainees and all rotators.  Each physical card cost $1.50 and that quickly adds up.  Old cards are to returned to Candice George via inter-office mail.  They will be wiped clean of identifying information and then reused.

 8-23-16: RAFA - Please share the following information with your residents/fellows/interns:

Starting this month, the Resident and Fellow Association (RAFA) will meet on the fourth Thursday of each month.  The next meeting is this Thursday, August 25th, 5:30pm at Press 626, at 626 W. Olney Rd, Norfolk (Ghent).   Last month’s meeting had a great turnout!!  Come hear what issues and ideas were discussed and share your own ideas for the coming year.  RAFA will take care of the appetizers!    RSVP to Monica Kamien at kamienmd@evms.edu or 446-6191 so we’ll know how many people to expect.  Thanks.

8-17-16: Vertically Integrated Curriculum (VIC) - The Vertically Integrated Curriculum is MANDATORY for all PGY 1s.
