Every week two new groups three to four students will report to EVMS at 9:30 a.m. The day will start of with a presentation from the Dean of the Medical School, Richard V. Homan. From there students will be given a tour of the campus by EVMS volunteers. The tour will consist of the library, various classrooms and dorms, as well as the Norfolk Children’s Hospital (CHKD.

Junior Weston Green is hopes to work in the medical field and is excited to get a hands-on experience of what medical school is like.

“The tour should be very informative and I hope to gain knowledge that will be viable for me in the future,” Green said.

AP Biology teacher Sabrina Shumate has sponsored this field trip for years and encourages interested students to take part in this informative experience.

“Although I won’t get to join the trip this year, I know this experience will benefit students interested in pursuing a career in medicine and I hope they have a blast,” Shumate said.
