Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2018

As a honest medical student and member of the EVMS community, I would strongly recommend you look elsewhere for your medical training. Not only is EVMS lacking much in the way of resources that other comparable medical schools may have, the culture that exists at EVMS is one that is counterproductive to success, this can be reflected by the above average faculty turnover and employee dissatisfaction (per online employer reviews). From the student's standpoint, I would have to say hard work is not recognized at this school. The school and the administration cherrypicks favorite students from the pool and these are usually the students who have spent a year or two prior to matriculation in the school's post-baccalaureate "Medical Masters" programs. These students are afforded extra accolades and recognition throughout their time at the school and carry this forward while other students who were not a member of this program are consistently treated as second-class citizens. I would like to add that the infrastructure that exists at this school for financial aid, IT services, etc. is very poor. The financial aid department is completely inept and has witnessed great turnover as well. With regards to IT services, it does not go long that there is some difficulty with this regard, be it the internet, network restrictions, or the inability to use vital resources such as the Google Drive.

Degree: Biomedical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2016

Choosing a college is a difficult decision, but the main factors that I took into account were what majors were offered, what extracurricular activities were available, and how much it costs. Ultimately, I think the best choice is to go wherever is the cheapest because not having student loans after graduating is a relief.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2017

EVMS is a great school, located in downtown Norfolk, Virginia. Although EVMS is primarily a medical school, there are numerous other health professions degrees available. The MPH program is a 2 year, full-time program. The MPH degree has 4 core concentrations for students to chose from. This is a small school, however it is surrounded by several healthcare facilities and hospitals. The MPH program needs some improvement, however it met my career needs.

Degree: Physician Assistant
Graduation Year: 2019

I am proud to be part of the EVMS student body. The culture at the school has a strong community focus and the dedication of the staff/faculty to each student's success is evident in their willingness to guide you on your path toward your goals. There are numerous student support services and opportunities for students to get involved in the community. The longevity of the MPA program with its many site affiliations provides for more varied clinical experiences, and the experience of the staff leaves no doubt that you will be prepared to pass the PANCE.

Being a part of the EVMS Medical Master's Program has helped me to become a competitive, well-rounded candidate for medical programs (MD and DO) across the country. Before the program I applied to medical school on my own and received 0 interviews. While in the program I received several interviews and acceptances and I attribute my successful cycle to EVMS; which was always a topic that interviewers were interested in. Beyond the well-established reputation, the curriculum allowed me to hone my studying techniques and have the confidence that I will do well in medical school and on the USMLE in future years.

Degree: Physician Assistant
Graduation Year: 2019

The EVMS campus is wonderful! It's faculty and staff and very supportive and available. It is a nationally ranked and highly sought after by potential students and also by employers of the graduates. I also attended the Surgical Assistant program at EVMS and am now advancing my career by returning to this wonderful school. I thoroughly enjoyed my time there previously and had a successful career to follow.

Eastern Virginia Medical School is nestled in the heart of Norfolk, VA. The dedicated faculty, up-to-date technology, and wide array of resources show just how dedicated the school is to the success of its students. The program directors are very involved with their students' education and their ability to succeed beyond the walls of EVMS. They are also incredibly dedicated to giving back to the community that provides so much knowledge to the students in their medical education.

Incredibly supportive of their students from the beginning of the program to the end. EVMS creates an environment where students feel like family, and everyone strives to push one another to the greatest level of success. I am fortunate to have the opportunity to attend such an incredible school.

Degree: Physician Assistant
Graduation Year: 2017

EVMS provides each student with the knowledge and skills they need to be a successful clinician upon graduation. All of the professors and staff are very helpful, knowledgable, and approachable. One con is the lack of personal time due to the intense curriculum. However, I feel that this could be an issue at any PA school because of the nature of PA training.
