2020 Spring Art Show: Creative Forces - an exhibit of healing

One of the exhibits in the show is part of an on-going project with staff at the Walter Reed Military Medical Center. Staff members disassembled their hospital scrubs and uniforms, made them into paper and dried them on top of radiation treatment masks from their patients, transforming the caregivers’ scrubs into likenesses of the people they cared for.

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.

Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service 2020

Consistent with our motto of Ut Prosim, MLK Day of Service has been a tradition in our medical school for the last six years: to find a community organization and to get together among student staff and faculty to go out and to support the community.

Dean Learman: It's January 20, 2020, and it's Martin Luther King birthday celebration and we are here celebrating a day of service at Renovation Alliance. This has been a tradition in our medical school for the last six years to find a community organization and to get together among student staff and faculty to go out and to support the community. 

Ellie Rigby, Renovation Alliance: They are working on building modular components of a handicap accessible ramp for a lady in northeast Roanoke who is currently waiting for her husband to be able to come home from a rehab facility. So this ramp will be the difference between this person's husband being able to come home or not. 

Class of 2022 student Marc Fromherz: [This is] definitely different than we normally do. We're out of the classroom, we're using power tools, which some us are better than others at using. We've been doing pretty well so far. 

Dean Learman: What a wonderful tradition here that our students have put together. Definitely consistent with our motto of Ut Prosim, and I am just delighted to be a part of it this year. 

Class of 2022 student Marc Fromherz: Since the community here in Roanoke has been so good, bringing us in and accepting us, you want to do something to give back, so it's a good way to get out of the classroom and actually help out the community here.
