Augusta Health hosts medical students in training

Twelve medical students from the Edward Via College of Osteopathic Medicine in Blacksburg will spend their third year of training in clinical rotations with physicians at Augusta Health.

Clinical rotations, an important part of medical training, allow the medical students to leave the classroom and learn through experience in hospitals and clinics.  After completing their third year rotations at Augusta Health, many of the students choose to return for fourth year clinical experiences at Augusta Health.

Augusta Health was chosen by VCOM because its mission complements VCOM’s mission to train students to provide community-focused care.  One of the goals of this training model is to encourage students to return to their clinical rotation community following residency to practice medicine.

This year’s third year students are:

  • Front row, left to right:  Michael Luu, Sarah Cottrell-Cumber, Eric Kim, Stefani Mead
  • Back row, left to right:  Michelle Anderson, Jourdan Hall, Michael Armstrong, Marissa Burd, Mikel Muse
  • Not pictured:  Eben Alexander, Alexis Goss, Kate Slaymaker


Augusta Free Press content is available for free, as it has been since 2002, save for a disastrous one-month experiment at putting some content behind a pay wall back in 2009.

(We won’t ever try that again. Almost killed us!)

That said, it’s free to read, but it still costs us money to produce. The site is updated several times a day, every day, 365 days a year, 366 days on the leap year.

(Stuff still happens on Christmas Day, is what we’re saying there.)

AFP does well in drawing advertisers, but who couldn’t use an additional source of revenue?

From time to time, readers ask us how they can support us, and we usually say, keep reading.

Now we’re saying, you can drop us a few bucks, if you’re so inclined.
