COVID-19 Risk Mitigation Guidance
This guidance applies to research in any VCOM operated lab, whether on a VCOM campus, rented lab space or collaborative University or clinical partner site. While researchers will be required to adhere to the guidance provided by the host site, each investigator must recognize that VCOM has an obligation to ensure that faculty, staff and students are protected from unnecessary COVID-19 exposure regardless of outside authorities.
To reach our mission, VCOM fosters a culture of faculty growth and institutional excellence through support of faculty, resident, and student research, innovation, and scholarly work. Through the College's research programs, multidisciplinary biomedical, clinical, and community-based research is conducted.
DO with Research Distinction
Many students at VCOM have a desire to conduct research as part of their medical education experience. Faculty and students also recognize the importance of continuous advancement in medical practice through cutting-edge research findings.
