The Department of Internal Medicine offers training in all of its major subspecialties.
The VCU Medical Center and the affiliated Hunter Holmes McGuire Veterans Affairs Medical Center provide excellent venues for subspecialty training. Large inpatient and outpatient populations provide a rich clinical experience for fellows and a large faculty with varied academic interests provides fellows with numerous opportunities in basic and clinical research.
Additional resources at VCU include a National Institutes of Health-sponsored Clinical Research Center and the NCI-sponsored Massey Cancer Center. The Department of Biostatistics offers the Master of Science as well as a Certificate in Clinical Research and Biostatistics.

VCU and Richmond
Our location in historic Richmond, the capital of Virginia since 1779, attracts students, faculty and staff from around the globe. Accessible by plane, train, bus and car, our location affords an easy day trip to Colonial Williamsburg, Washington, D.C., Virginia Beach and the Blue Ridge Mountains. With a greater metropolitan population of nearly one million, the city's size provides for stimulating activities, yet its small-town atmosphere offers charm and a big-city feel.
Unique, vibrant neighborhoods in and around Richmond exemplify the diversity of the city and range from historic Church Hill — one of the best preserved 19th-century neighborhoods in the country — to the Fan District, 85 blocks of quaint homes, family-run eateries and eclectic boutiques.
Recognized as the cultural, economic and political focal point of Virginia, Richmond offers a plethora of cultural and recreational opportunities — from viewing the latest art exhibition at one of the city's many museums, to camping, kayaking, white-water rafting, canoeing or caving in the city's 75 riverfront parks and urban wilderness areas.
