The school operates on a 4-year semimodern curricular system. During the first two year, the basic sciences are presented as the foundation for the practice of medicine. Small group, problem-based sessions with basic and clinical scientists as facilitators are utilized. Students receive introductory education in clinical and interpersonal skills and attend preceptorships with a physician in private practice.

In years three and four, students rotate through clinical clerkships in family medicine, internal medicine, obstetrics and gynecology, pediatrics, psychiatry, and surgery, and through selectives designed to meet special interests and career goals. A significant portion of the clinical clerkships are devoted to ambulatory care, but as expected, the major portion is associated with inpatient care. In addition to the standard required clerkships, there are rotations in surgical subspecialties, geriatrics, and substance abuse. For students planning generalist careers, opportunities are available for taking electives in rural health care and an honors tract. Electives may occupy up to 6 months and provide a significant opportunity for subspecialty and/or research experience.

Students are promoted on the basis of their ability to complete required objectives satisfactorily, with achievement being designated as Honors, High Pass, Pass, Fail, or Incomplete. The school’s primary teaching and research facilities are housed in buildings that are part of the 33-acre Eastern Virginia Medical Center. Clinical experience is provided through affiliation with 29 medical health care facilities located within Hampton Roads. Research facilities are located in Lewis Hall, Hofheimer Hall, and South Campus. The medical library has a large collection of books and receives a wide range of serial periodicals
