Being a faculty member is about more than teaching, practicing medicine and conducting research — it’s also about connecting with your peers, building community and engaging in life at VCU School of Medicine. We encourage you to take advantage of the myriad opportunities across the medical school, the health system and the university at large to participate in committees, groups and events that will expand your network and horizons both professionally and personally.


Faculty members can get involved with the School of Medicine community by lending their time and expertise to committees that serve our school.
