EVMS to Consider Becoming Part of William and Mary

The College of William and Mary and Eastern Virginia Medical School have agreed to explore the feasibility of having EVMS become the William and Mary School of Medicine.

The schools announced the exploration process in a joint statement on Wednesday. The College of William and Mary is located in Williamsburg and EVMS is in Norfolk. EVMS has no correlating undergraduate institution.

The joint statement says that before a decision can be made by either school, each must carefully investigate the implications of such a combination.

The statement says it is not known how long that will take. If the schools decide to proceed, it would require the approval of the General Assembly and the governor.
