What sets us apart?
Train in diverse settings
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.
Hampton Veterans Affairs Medical Center
The Hampton Veterans Affairs Medical Center has 142 acute beds in medicine, surgery, psychiatry and neurology, 234 extended care beds in intermediate medicine, palliative (hospice) care, spinal cord injury and nursing home care and a 294-bed rehabilitative residential care domiciliary for a total of 670 operating beds. Internal Medicine research at this facility focuses on diseases related to aging and nutrition. Combined Internal Medicine and Geriatrics residents complete a geriatric rotation in their second year of training.
Sentara Ambulatory Care Clinic
Our residents participate in Sentara's Ambulatory Care Clinic, which provides uncompensated medical care to uninsured or underinsured Norfolk residents in 17,000 annual visits. The clinic is a follow-up option for patients recently discharged from Sentara hospitals and emergency facilities. The Ambulatory Care Clinic provides various services including 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 during all three years of residency and work with a multidisciplinary healthcare team to deliver continuity care and maintain patient relations.
EVMS Hofheimer Hall
Residents and attending physicians hold Internal Medicine clinics in EVMS' Hofheimer Hall, the residency's primary teaching site. Residents attend weekly Internal Medicine Grand Rounds at this on-campus building, just across the street from Sentara Norfolk General Hospital. Hofheimer Hall houses practice locations and offices for subspecialties, including EVMS' Glennan Center for Geriatrics and Gerontology, Pulmonary and Critical Care and Infectious Diseases.
