Compassionate and collegial caregiving
At EVMS, education is about more than books and laboratories. It’s about making a difference people's lives. That is why in 2012, EVMS founded the M. Foscue Brock Institute for Community and Global Health, an interdisciplinary institute through which EVMS integrates educational, clinical, public health and research enterprises, coordinates existing and proposed community outreach programs, and improves the health of the communities in which we serve. The goals of the Institute are:
- To train the next generation of community-minded physicians and health-care professionals;
- To build a robust training program that will offer students meaningful service learning, research and scholarship experiences; and
- To become a model for other medical schools throughout the country.
