The Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine provides a unique academic experience that prepares students to be physician scientists and forward-thinking community leaders. Centered around four Value Domains (Basic Science, Clinical Science, Research, and Interprofessionalism), our curriculum areas are interlinked and feature small-group problem-based learning. In addition, students engage in an individual research project during their four years, the end product, of which, is a paper of publishable quality in a major academic journal.

Another of our unique academic features is an emphasis on learning and working together with other allied health professionals. This includes small-group service learning projects within the local community that are carried out by student interprofessional teams.
