Learn more about our GME programs

Our community-based Graduate Medical Education is one of the nation's few training programs in which all residencies are integrated among a number of hospitals and community clinic settings, instead of one fixed setting such as a university hospital. Our residents work at 14 teaching affiliate hospitals, staffing hospitals 24 hours a day, implementing new treatment methods and conducting research. They see patients from diverse backgrounds and work with community faculty.

Explore our shared campus

One of the benefits of attending EVMS is the close proximity to CHKD and Sentara Norfolk General Hospital. The shared campus gives students access to educational opportunities as well as high-level subspecialty care.

See yourself in Hampton Roads

The Hampton Roads region that EVMS serves is a vibrant community with 1.7 million residents scattered across nine cities and five counties in southeastern coastal Virginia.

Miles of waterfront, historical and cultural attractions, parks and outdoor recreation areas, lively nightlife, seasonal festivals and family-friendly entertainment make it clear that there's something for everyone here in Hampton Roads.

At EVMS, we know life happens, and we want you to be covered when it does. That’s why we offer competitive benefits packages for our residents and fellows.

A supportive environment

Work-life balance is important during your fellowship, and we are committed to supporting our fellows throughout their time at EVMS. Through EVMS' Wellness Works program, our residents and fellows receive the same wellness resources as our faculty and staff.

In addition, our Resident Wellness program for residents and fellows gives you access to support groups, after-hours counseling services, running clubs, leadership coaching and more.
