Today, 2,300 physicians hold degrees from EVMS, including 500 who practice in Hampton Roads and 300 who practice in other regions of Virginia. In addition, the school has a growing health professions program, with programs in biomedical sciences, public health, and other specialties.
Approximately 180,000 people received medical care from physicians and health professionals at EVMS.
Besides boosting the Hampton Roads economy annually by more than half a billion dollars and creating more than 10,500 jobs, EVMS has put the region on the map internationally for biomedical research.
