Where you'll train
Ghent Family Medicine
Ghent Family Medicine, an outpatient clinic located within EVMS' Hofheimer Hall, is our residency's primary teaching site. Residents see patients and attend lectures and grand rounds at this on-campus building, just across the street from Sentara Norfolk General Hospital. Designated as a Patient-Centered Medical Home, this practice has received the highest level of accreditation from the National Committee for Quality Assurance.
Sentara Norfolk General Hospital
Sentara Norfolk General Hospital is home to the area's only Level I trauma center and burn trauma unit, the region's premier heart program and the primary teaching hospital for EVMS. Its active cardiology, cardiac rehabilitation, sleep medicine, epilepsy and oncology programs, as well as its heart, lung, kidney and pancreas transplant programs, make Sentara Norfolk General an ideal place for residents to perform their rounds.
Sentara Ambulatory Care Clinic
Sentara's Ambulatory Care Clinic provides uncompensated medical care to uninsured or underinsured Norfolk residents. The Ambulatory Care Clinic is a follow-up option for patients recently discharged from Sentara hospitals and emergency facilities. The clinic offers lab services, X-rays, EKGs, specialty clinics and medication assistance programs, which are available to help patients get prescription medications free or at a reduced cost. Trainees rotate in the clinic and work with a multidisciplinary healthcare team to deliver continuity care and maintain patient relations.
