Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine
Welcome to Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine
Through a unique public-private partnership between a cutting edge-research university and a major health care institution, the Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine educates physician thought leaders through inquiry, research, and discovery.
The college has four value domains that drive our educational goals and objectives and are interwoven throughout the four-year curriculum: basic science, clinical science, research, and interprofessionalism.
VTCSOM assemble face shields for COVID-19
Students from the Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine are volunteering their time to assemble face shields that teams from the Virginia Tech College of Engineering created using 3D printers. The shields are going to local health care organizations to protect workers from COVID-19.

Harrison Brookman, Class of 2022: We are assembling face shields that have been produced by the Virginia Tech engineering department so they've 3-D printed frames and then laser-cut clear plastic for the shield.
The design was adapted initially from Prusa which is a 3d printing company and then the Virginia Tech engineering group modified it based on what the Carilion infection control providers gave some feedback on.
Dr. Damon Kuehl reached out to us and we kind of put a call out to the students and have been coming together maybe once or twice a week for the past couple weeks. Dr. Kuehl told us that the first demos that we sent to the emergency department, a nurse started crying and made sure to write her name on it because she was so excited didn't want anybody to take it.
It makes me feel really good I mean I've been stuck in my apartment here in Roanoke for the past couple months trying to isolate myself and it feels good to be able to give back to the community and give back to the folks that are out on the frontlines.
