Excellence, integrity, teamwork and service

That's what drives EVMS Medical Group to be the best place for patients to receive care, the best place for employees to work, and the best place for physicians to practice medicine. We are a not-for-profit physician group supporting EVMS with more than 150 physicians at 20 locations.

What makes our group different?

All of our physicians are all full-time faculty at EVMS, which brings an academic advantage based on cutting-edge research and daily interaction with other clinicians and scientists.  We specialize in translational medicine, sometimes referred to as "bench to bedside," a cross-disciplinary field involving researchers, clinicians and patients which translates scientific discoveries into new treatments. Our mission is to provide quality health care that's safe, patient-centered, cost-effective and timely.

Our history

In the 1960s, there were few opportunities for medical education in Hampton Roads, so a group of committed residents proposed the creation of a new medical school. They believed this would attract a higher caliber of medical residents to the area and lead to improved patient care in both hospitals and private practices. 

Thanks to the determination of many working toward a common goal, Eastern Virginia Medical College welcomed its first matriculating MD class in 1973. Soon afterward, EVMS Medical Group began operating as a practice plan for the school. It's now served as the workplace for aspiring physicians and health professionals, passionate educators and medical pioneers for over four decades.

Marcial Sanchez Romero

Working with EVMS Medical Group physicians often leads to life changing outcomes. Marcial Sanchez Romero, whose story is told in the video below, lost both arms as a result of an electrocution accident in 2017. After working with our Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation clinicians, he received myoelectric hands, which allowed him to do things he hadn't been able to in years.

Brooke LeFlors

When Brooke LeFlors was 19 weeks pregnant, she found out her baby would be born with a cleft lip and palate. “Having your first baby is scary, but having your first baby with something wrong where they will need surgery is even scarier,” Mrs. LeFors says. Thanks to the facial plastic surgeons at EVMS Medical Group, little Liam now looks like any other child.
