I get the general appearance that professors and physicians think we are lazy and do not want to learn and therefore, the education we get here suffers. For eg, if students don't show up to an in-person lecture because lectures are recorded & posted online then the professor takes it personally instead of realizing that we may simply prefer to learn via the e-lecture which allows us to pause and rewind as needed to learn.

Any progress to make change to improve the school/education is slow and has red tape from the administration and is stunted by the fact "we are a small school"&"care a lot about our reputation".

Further, contrary to much of the press the school promotes, the preclinical curriculum the school provides does not adequately prepare students for the clinical years as there gaps and the standardized patient encounters don't teach students to think on their feet as far as the questions to ask during a patient interview or maneuvers to perform in a physical exam.
Review Eastern Virginia Medical School
I love EVMS and it's small-school atmosphere. Most folks are very friendly and we have some top-notch professors and staff!
Campus dining is so-so. As far as quality goes, it's about as good as you'd expect in any dining commons or hospital cafeteria. However, EVMS students get 30% off their entire purchase at the cafeteria, so the value is well worth it!
