Two dedicated symposia rooms function as the main lecture rooms for the first- and second-year classes.
The medical school building houses 10 OSCE rooms. Two of those spaces are designed to be larger than the others to support team, group and interdisciplinary training. The OSCE rooms are connected to a patient lounge with locker and restroom facilities, a waiting area, and dedicated office space for a coordinator. An observation area allows for one observer per exam room for real time monitoring of activities.
The AHP Lab will serve many specialty uses for disciplines including anatomy, histology and pathology. Procedures, dissection and micro section will take place here.
Most of the clinical training experience at VTCSOM will take place in a Carilion Clinic facility. Carilion Clinic’s resources, its inpatient and many outpatient sites, its proximity to VTCSOM, and the size and expertise of its faculty in clinical practice and education create a very vibrant clinical teaching environment.
Carilion Clinic provides a wide range of medical services and specialties at outpatient facilities and in hospitals throughout western Virginia. VTCSOM students will train in an environment where advanced treatments, leading technologies, skilled specialists, and the setting of new standards in medicine and care are the norm.
