Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine Fast Facts
The Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine and Research Institute (VTC) is a public-private partnership formed by Virginia Tech and Carilion Clinic. The Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine is a private four-year medical school offering the doctor of medicine (M.D.) degree. Utilizing an innovative patient-centered curriculum, VTC addresses the increasing need for physicians who translate research from the bench to the bedside and into the community. The curriculum provides an exemplary education in basic sciences and clinical sciences and skills, but transcends the traditional medical education model by providing a solid foundation in, and opportunities to explore, the disciplines of research and interprofessionalism. Our small class size of 42 students allows for individualized attention and participation by each student which will in turn foster an intense and rewarding educational experience. We envision that VTC students will be highly sought after by residency programs and will become physician thought leaders in their chosen field of medicine.
The VTC interprofessionalism program involves VTC students in a collaboration project with students from other health professions on a community-based service learning project during the first year. The curriculum maximizes self-directed learning by minimizing formal didactic sessions and emphasizing self-directed learning. Small teams work in a problem-based learning format using patient cases. Ample time is dedicated to providing students with the opportunity to learn and practice clinical skills using lectures, panel discussions, movies, reflection, simulation models, standardized and real patients. Over the four year curriculum, each VTC student must complete a hypothesis-driven research project guided by a mentoring team, provide a written document suitable for publication, and present their work in an appropriate venue.
