VTCSOM students will spend the majority of their inpatient rotations at Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital. One of the largest hospitals in the state, the 825-bed hospital recently completed a large expansion project, adding a new emergency department, labor and delivery unit and the Carilion Clinic Children’s Hospital. Now in its second century of providing premiere healthcare services, the hospital also features a Level I Trauma Center supported by one of the first fully integrated patient transport services in the country.
Carilion Clinic has an affiliation agreement with the Salem Veterans Affairs Medical Center (Salem, Va.) to serve as an additional site for training. The Salem VA provides services to more than 112,500 veterans living in a 26-county area of southwestern Virginia and provides a training site in surgery, internal medicine, psychiatry, family medicine and ophthalmology.
Carilion Clinic is the largest multi-specialty physician practice, including the largest primary care group, in Virginia. Carilion Clinic’s primary care division consists of more than 200 physicians, nurse practitioners and physician assistants in 70 offices across western Virginia and the Shenandoah Valley. Offices are equipped with onsite laboratory and imaging services and minor procedure rooms, and offer family-centered medical and prenatal care, diagnostics, and minor surgery. A common electronic medical record is implemented at all locations.
Carilion Clinic's primary care providers manage chronic conditions and develop a healthier lifestyle for patients through patient education, disease prevention and counseling services. Building on the inpatient clinical experience, the VTCSOM outpatient rotations allow students to participate first-hand in continuity of care.
