Sentara Norfolk General Hospital
Sentara Norfolk General Hospital, the primary teaching hospital for EVMS, is home to the area's only Level I trauma center and burn trauma unit and the region's premier heart program. 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 train. Residents rotate through routine newborn care and specialized care in Sentara Norfolk General's nurseries, attending high-risk deliveries, supporting families and participating in hands-on procedures with newborn and preterm infants.
“Our attendings and staff truly care about our clinical and academic progression and sow into each of us individually. It has truly been a joy to train here at EVMS and CHKD.”
