We encourage all of our students to explore the resources and support services available to them at the School of Medicine.

Life in Richmond

We encourage our students to maintain a healthy work-life balance, and Richmond is a wonderful place to engage in a well-rounded lifestyle. As a mid-sized city with a metropolitan population of 1.3 million, Richmond features vibrant neighborhoods that offer distinct, diverse experiences, with no shortage of art galleries, museums, music venues, restaurants, breweries and parks.
