Changing the landscape of the Eastern Virginia Medical School campus and our region’s health, a new building at the corner of Brambleton and Colley avenues. This new academic center is a vital hub for the collaborative work that defines EVMS’s distinctive approach to medicine, and support the next generation of leadership and growth at EVMS.
The new EVMS Education & Academic Administration Building (Waitzer Hall) expands the capacity and consolidates existing spaces for teaching, study, student support and administrative workplace. The building was built with the intent to house the primary classroom spaces for first and second year Medical School (M1, M2) and Medical Masters students,as well as the University’s President’s and various administrative staff office suites and additional space for growing programs of the School of Health Professions. The classrooms are designed to EVMS instructional standard of team-based learning (TBL). In lieu of a traditional lecture format, TBL is an active learning format that emphasizes collaborative student work in small groups of six to eight, to solve problems. In addition, students have access to a variety of group and individual study spaces adjacent to these Classrooms. The building includes a 7-level parking deck.
