A public-private medical school founded by grassroots efforts in the southeastern part of Virginia, EVMS is not affiliated with an undergraduate institution (like most other public medical schools) but dedicated solely to graduate biomedical and health education. Training is coordinated through multiple medical centers in the region.

The new education and academic administration building houses the Medical Masters programs and staff, while consolidating numerous academic support departments currently dispersed across multiple buildings both on and off campus. The design embodies its educational purpose by unifying the medical school and fostering a team-based learning environment that promotes both inter- and intra-professional collaboration.
