Categories Comments Clubs and Activities
Tons of clubs already available, and faculty is more than willing to help students spearhead any new clubs they're interested in founding.
Bang for the buck
I'm an OOS student, so tuition is quite high for me.
What to do for fun
There are a decent amount of things to do in the city, and Richmond, Philly, and DC are all accessible for a weekend trip.
Food and Dining
The hospital cafeteria is nothing special, but all EVMS students get 30% off their entire purchase. Well worth the value
Most students live off campus
This is going to be fairly constant between any US medical schools. However, pre-clerkship years here are graded on a tiered (H, HP, P, F) system, as opposed to a pass / no-pass system. This naturally makes 1st and 2nd year a bit more stressful.
Tips for prospective students
In three sentences
EVMS has a great welcoming atmosphere. The admissions committee is extremely good at both attracting and selecting students who genuinely care about the community as well as collaboration among colleagues. The faculty is very open to students and willing to go the extra mile.
