One pro of attending Eastern Virginia Medical School for your MD degree is the size of the school. Due to it's smaller size it is easy to network with faculty, staff, and doctors in the area. The faculty is extremely friendly and always willing to help their students. One con of attending Eastern Virginia Medical School is the lack of research opportunities as this school is more clinically focused.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2015

The most positive aspect of EVMS's art therapy program is that it strives to be current and provide classes that will be of the most benefit to the student post graduation. Professors are readily available to students and genuinely care for them. A particular con is that there are no career services to assist students prior to graduation. Instead, a single class helps prepare students professionally in their last semester. However, the availability of networking, connections, and job assistance is greatly lacking.

EVMS has amazing faculty members who truly work towards improving themselves and the curriculum to meet the students. Additionally, they work towards ensuring that each student is keeping up with the class work by sending an e-mail or setting up tutoring when a student's grades are not up to par. The students have created a community of collaboration, and it is furthered facilitated by faculty. Student focus groups and input is consistently sought after so changes that we suggest will be implemented at the earliest convenience. The only cons are the lack of IT support.

EVMS is a great school. We are very community oriented with a student run free clinic and volunteering opportunities with local public schools etc. The one thing I really like about EVMS is that it supports everyone of its students academically with free tutoring etc. for anyone who is struggling with school. The faculty is great as they are very responsive to the student body and take our feedback seriously. Every time we voice our suggestions they make changes accordingly, we have student affairs and student progress representatives that works diligently not only for the current class but for incoming students and future classes. Cons: We have a traditional block based curriculum instead of a system based curriculum. This at times makes it hard to integrate different courses to one and decreases efficiency. With that said our school is working hard to move towards a system based curriculum and the faculty works together to make our lives easier.

I am currently enrolled in my first your of grad school at Eastern Virginia Medical School and thus I have not discovered any cons for my graduate programs. HOWEVER The pros are that I was accepted based on my passion for health care and my uniqueness. The program offers great support in finding future careers and offers GREAT networking opportunities in and through the community for it is next to and works with the Children's Hospital of the King's Daughters. I'm sure I will discover more PROS in the time coming!

It was a wonderful school and a great experience, I wouldn't have enjoyed medical school as much had I gone elsewhere. It is a very community oriented school and fosters volunteering.
