Virginia's newest medical school is getting ready for its first class. Orientation begins Aug. 2 for the first 42 students at the Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine in Roanoke. Classes begin the following week.
The school was the brainchild of Virginia Tech President Charles Steger and Carilion chief executive Dr. Ed Murphy.
The $59 million school and research institute was paid for through a state bond package.
The school will begin interviewing applicants for its second
class on Aug. 28.
