Welcome to Campus Life
Students at the Virginia Commonwealth University School of Medicine will not only find an unparalleled learning experience inside the classroom and at the VCU Medical Center, but will also discover plenty of opportunities to gain knowledge through involvement in extracurricular activities.
You and your fellow classmates may gather at local Richmond restaurants, explore the city’s history and parks or kayak through the heart of downtown on the James River’s Class IV rapids. Meanwhile, the school’s 50-plus registered student organizations show there’s something here for everyone, from student government to groups related to your specialty.
Learn more through photo and video galleries of the school’s most memorable events, including interviews of students participating in Foundations of Clinical Medicine, the White Coat Ceremony and Match Day, and read profiles from students as they share their experiences at VCU in their own words.
