In a 1967 report entitled "Report of the Commission to plan for the establishment of a 
proposed state-supported university in the Richmond Metropolitan Area," better 
known as the Wayne Commission Report, the merging of the Medical College of 
Virginia and Richmond Professional Institute was proposed and justified. With the 
support of the Virginia General Assembly and Governor Mills E. Godwin, Jr., this 
proposal became a reality when these two institutions were brought together in 1968 to 
form Virginia Commonwealth University. In the fall of 2008, our university celebrated 
the 40th anniversary of the merger. On the MCV Campus, the celebration was kicked 
off on October 22 with the dedication of two historic markers which commemorate the 
history of the St. Philip School of Nursing and the birthplace of cardiac transplantation. 




In recognition of the 40th anniversary of VCU, photos of the MCV Campus in the late 
1960s were obtained from the library archives. In this Past and Present series, we 
present a few of these old images and their corresponding view today. While some 
locations have changed drastically over the past 40 years as old buildings were torn 
down to make way for the new, many of the beloved buildings we walk by each day 
continue to serve their function four decades later. 



Hunton Hall on the northeast 
comer of 12th and Marshall 
was constructed as a dormitory 
for house staff in 1938. It was 
taken down in 1977 to make 
way for Main Hospital. 




The heating plant and the Patient 
Visitor Parking Deck along the 
13th street corridor can be seen 
here in the 1960s. The parking 
deck was later extended and the 
heating plant was demolished in 
2005 to make way for the 
Critical Care Hospital. The new 
15-level, 232-bed facility was 
dedicated on October 8, 2008. 




Tennis courts, across 10th street from 
MCV campus dormitory complex, used to 
occupy the location where N Deck and the 
new School of Nursing building stand today. 



Built in 1952 for use as a nursing school dormitory, 
the Randolph Minor Hall on College Street was 
torn down in 2003 to make way for the Goodwin 
Laboratory of the Massey Cancer Center. 




le Medical Education Building, dedicated 
d named for Medical College of Virginia 
ssident Dr. William Sanger in 1970, was 
ilt in three phases. The first phase, built 
1963, is seen here in the old image. The 
;ond phase, completed in 1970, provided 
■ee additional stories. Finally, the third 
ase, completed in 1974, extended the 
th street wing toward Broad Street. 







ii|ii«ppp?=""*^"»iiii 




The tri-level pedestrian bridge across 
12th street between Sanger Hall and 
A.D. Williams has not changed much 
over the past 40 years. 



Trees have grown tall in the past four decades at the 

Sanger Hall courtyard, now known as the Margaret 

Newman Patterson Memorial Garden. An alleyway 

ran between the Medical 

Education Building (now 

known as Sanger) and the 

Student Union (now known 

as the Hunton Smdent 

Center) before phase III of 

Sanger Hall was completed 

in 1974.

On April 19th 2008, VCU students and community healthcare providers worked 
together at the Richmond Convention Center for the first annual VCU/MCV Campus 
Community Health Fair. A completely student-driven initiative, the health fair began 
as an idea that the Richmond community could benefit from services provided by 
MCV campus students.

Some of the best election memories may not 
be from the election trails but from skits on

inauguration marked 
the end of President

Letter from graduating class president 

Class of 2009, 

It seems like yesterday that we just met, braced for whatever may come our 
way. Our thoughts were inundated with anticipation, excitement, and 
uncertainty for what lie ahead. Then, four years of dental school seemed an 
almost intangible task. Yet four years have passed, in the blink of an eye. We 
look back now in disbelief at how much we have done, in seemingly so Uttle 
time. Looking forward, we are revisited with the same anticipation, excitement, 
and uncertainty we once had. A major milestone in our lives has been achieved. 
As you continue to move forward, full throttle, with your eyes on the road 
ahead, dont forget to glance back in the rear view mirror now and then and 
remember just how far youve come. 

On a personal note, it has been my honor and privilege to work with all of you 
for the past four years. I couldnt imagine a more dedicated, motivated, and 
devoted group of people. A thank you could never be enough for your 
unyielding kindness, generosity, and support. We have made our own dental 
school experience a great one. I am sure you are all eager to take the next step, 
and I wish each of you the VERY BEST, wherever you may go. 

In the words of Dr. Seuss 

Be sure when you step. 

Step with care and great tact 

and remember that Lifes 

a Great Balancing Act. 

Just never forget to be dexterous and deft. 

And never mix up your right foot with your left. 

And will you succeed? 
Yes! You will, indeed! 
(98 and % percent guaranteed.) 

You're off to Great Places! 
Today is your day! 
Your future is waiting. 
So get on your way! 

CLASS, YOU'LL MOVE MOUNTAINS! KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK! 

Most Sincerely and Respectfully, 

Eric 'Vhidden

Letter from graduating class preside] 



Class of 2009 and otKer members of tKe 
IvlCV 03mmunity, 

Looking back on this long journey that we embarked on four years ago, many 
memories were made and much experience was gained. It is from these times 
that our lives have been shaped and we will begin our careers this upcoming 
summer. I speak on behalf of the Class of 2009 and wish to thank everyone that 
helped mold us into the physicians that we have become. Without our patients 
and their families we would not have learned true empathy and compassion. 
Without our residents and attendings we would not have gained the knowledge 
needed to take care of others. We are in debt and grateful for your help on our 
journey. 

To the other members of the MCV community, the field of medicine is not 
complete without you. It is through your efforts and hard work that true patient 
care is achieved. We thank you and wish you all the best in your career paths. 

For those still enduring on the path that we all chose, I wish you the best of luck 
over the next couple of years. These years during medical school are gruesome 
and difficult but they may prove to be some of the best of your life. Time will 
pass quickly and before you know it the end of your journey will soon approach. 

Finally, to the Class of 2009, congratulations on this significant achievement in 
your life. I urge you to remember what drew each of us to the field of medicine 
and follow the desire in your heart to becoming a physician. The memories and 
lessons from over the past years will help to guide all of us through residency 
and our career. I wish you all the best of luck and hope that our career paths will 
cross again in the future.

Letter from class directors 



J 



Dear Senior Clsiss, 

Congratulations, seniors! Nursing school is unlike any other major. It takes a 
certain type of person to not only be a college student, but to learn to be a 
professional. Being a graduate of VCU School of Nursing means we have begun 
a journey toward a lifetime of helping others. Once we receive our diplomas we 
will be charged with educating others about our profession and all that it means 
to be an RN. Its not just waiting on others at the bedside it takes creativity, 
organization, and clinical expertise, while expressing compassion. While 
nursing is a challenging career, VCUs School of Nursing has trained us in the 
most up-to-date evidence and practice, and prepared us to be leaders in our 
field. As we embark on our new careers we should be proud to be graduates of 
Virginia Commonwealth University. Good luck and best wishes we did it! 

Sincerely, 

Claudia Verdirame & Jean Rabb

Letter from gradiaating class president 

To the Class of 2009, 

I remember our class of 130 new faces on our first orientation day; eager and 
excited and completely unaware of what was about to happen. No matter how 
prepared we thought we were, I dont believe we could have predicted the 
individual paths we each would travel to reach our final day of celebration. 
From the very first day we stood up to announce our intentions upon graduation, 
we have changed. We are now fundamentally different people because of the 
friends we have made, the organizations we became involved with, and our 
personal experiences that we will never forget. We began to learn about 
pharmacy. We began to learn about ourselves. We began to look at life with 
fresh eyes. 

Change occurred around us as we ourselves were changing. We had the fortune 
of attending our spring formals at The Jefferson, our class proudly holds the 
inaugural students for our INOVA campus program, and the Larrick Center 
came down as Hunton Hall was erected. Lets also not forget the countless 
Thursday evenings at Tobacco and Sine, all our school functions that 
encouraged costumes, and our pharmacy picnics complete with tug-of-war. 
While our daytime lives were consumed in Smith, GBJ and Sanger, we each 
branched out and found our niche within professional organizations, research, 
service, leadership, and in trying new things. We have each shown excellence 
in our own way, and the moments defining our time here will never be forgotten 
as they have paved the way for those following our footsteps. 

While our journey through pharmacy school was different for each of us, the 
close of this chapter promises a new beginning for us all. In four quick years, 
our adventures were accompanied by joy and stress, by tears and 
accomplishments, and with the strength of our peers and loved ones that carried 
us through the toughest of times. Through all of our experiences at the Medical 
College of Virginia, we have learned more about who we are and how our 
professional and personal purpose is unfolding. We have each been hand 
selected to make a difference in the lives of those closest to us just as equally as 
in the lives of patients we may never meet. 

I thank each of you for the collaboration of experiences that has shaped our 
times together, and wish each of you the best in all your future endeavors. May 
we all keep in touch and never forget why we chose pharmacy. 

Warmest Regards, 



70

VLOM. Project 



Mission of Mercy 



The Virginia Commonwealth University School of Dentistry in conjunction with the Virginia Dental 
Association and the Virginia Health Care Foundation have formed a partnership in providing dental care for 
the uninsured and underserved populations of Virginia. The Mission of Mercy Project was initiated because 
thousands of Virginians are unable to obtain dental care despite their urgent needs. One of the largest factors 
influencing a persons ability to access dental services in Virginia is geography, specifically, where a person 
lives. In some rural areas, the ratio may be as low as one dentist to 5000+ individuals. 

In July 2000, the Virginia Dental Health Foundation launched the Mission of Mercy (M.O.M.) Project. The 

Mission of Mercy Projects are conducted in identified, underserved areas of the state where there are not 

enough dental practitioners to adequately address the oral health needs of the community. Due to the 

tremendous success of the 2000 project, over thirty-eight additional M.O.M. projects have been hosted, in areas 

such as the Eastern Shore, Wise County, Northern Virginia, Petersburg, Grundy and Martinsville. 

The VCU School of Dentistry plays a vital role in not only giving care to this needy population but also 

providing staffing support, transportation, supply management and a large number of volunteers, including 

dental students, dental hygiene students, advanced education students, faculty and staff. To date, more than 

29,588 patients have been provided with over $14.4 million worth of free dental care. Each dollar donated to 

the MOM Project allows us to give $32 in free services to those most in need. Virginias M.O.M. projects have 

broken records for the largest two and three day dental outreach clinics ever conducted in the United States and 

serve as models for other states.

Mission of Mercy 



Mission of Mercy Projects have been iield in airport hangers, high schools, 

vacant factories and fairgrounds. Field clinics are set up, resembling a 
M.A.S.H. unit with portable dental chairs, dental units, x-ray machines and 
sterilization facilities. Patients start lining up the night before to ensure that 

they have a place in line that guarantees that they will receive treatment. 

Usually these projects are held in conjunction with a health fair that provides 

screenings and physical exams for the community. Seeing patients stand in 

line, when the students arrive at 6:00 a.m., is usually the first glimpse of 

their patients for the day. It can be overwhelming to realize how great the 

need for dental treatment is, not only abroad but also in their own state. 

Dental School faculty, staff and students, as well as other local health 

practitioners apply for the opportunity to be part of the project. They are 

chosen to attend based on their record of teamwork, their ability to follow 

instructions, and clinical skill. Students are able to perform any treatment 

that they have already been trained to provide in dental school. Faculty 

supervise the students and provide instruction. Time moves very quickly 

with an effort to provide at least one procedure for every person who seeks 

treatment. It is also an opportunity to demonstrate that dentistry is a caring 

profession concerned for the patients emotionally as well as professionally. 

The patients that are seen are very appreciative but the volunteers have 

found that they often times receive more than they give. 

Supplies for these projects come from donations by major companies as well 
as individual support. But the greatest return is from the patients who 

provide us with the enthusiasm and new smiles that truly show that dentistry 
is more than a skill but also a gift we, as dentists, can share with others.

Latin Club 



The MCV Latin Club was established this year in an 
ffort to familiarize medical students with Latin-derived 
nedical terms and to learn about medical practices in 
incient Roman and Greek civilization. 



Medical Latin Fun Fact: 

The Caesarian section was mistakenly named 
after Julius Caesar, who was said to be 
delivered in this manner. In actuality, his 
mother Aurelia survived approximately 45 
years after his birth, a feat impossible for a 
woman who had undergone this surgery in the 
ancient Roman era.

Empowering individuals to create a positive impact 
in their local and global community 



Road trip! 

NSWB group 

members went on 

trips with other 

medical groups to 

provide medical 

screenings... 

and to have fun ! 





Indeed, as the 

shirt says... 

Nursing is a 

work of 

HEART. 



140 




The NSWB group 
took a moment 
to pose for an 
official photo. 




Ginger - creator of VCU's NSWB - explained tiie group 
to new members at the first meeting of the school year. 
The group provides medical screenings, created a 
medical recycling program to save and redistribute 
unused surgical items to programs in need, and held 
events to raise money for future group projects - like the 
upcoming nursing trip to Belize in Spring 2009. 



Katie and Megan 
discussed the details of 
the group's upcoming 
nursing trip to Belize. 



Sallie, an active 
member, asked 
quesions about the 
trip and about 
other NSWB 
opportunities. 



Ann Wyatt got involved 
in the discussion, as she 
was the main information 
contact for NSWB 
members. 




December 1st is World 

AIDS Day every year. 

NSWB members went out 

to distribute information, 

condoms, 

and good will among 

Richmonders.

Editor-in-Chief 

Nathan Lewis 
Medicine 2009 



Thank you for picking up a copy of 
the 96th yeaibook for the MCV 
Campus, The X-Ray. The Medical 
College of Virginia has a long and 
inspiring history, and for neai'ly a 
century, the X-Ray has been there 
to document the life and times of 
the students at this institution. It is 
my hope that this book will sei-ve as 
a keepsake so that years from now 
we may look back at the beginning 
of our professional careers. It was a 
privilege and an honor to bring you 
the this year's edition of the X-Ray.

I do yearbook because to me 
it's a way to collect 
memories and keep them all 
in one place.. What other 
excuse would I have to 
capture images of people 
doing simulations or class 
presentations? Years down 
the road we will have these 
pages to help us remember 
how we began this new 
stage in our lives with our 
friends and colleagues. 




The tradition of 
the yearbook 
allows us to 
look back at the 
in-between and 
remember what 
we would 
otherwise forget. 




As a PI, working on the 
yeai'book has helped me 
learn more about our 
School of Pharmacy and 
the student organizations 
within it. Also, it 
provided a great creative 
outlet in my world of 
biology, chemistry and 
math-based courses! I 
look forward to being a 
part of the X-Ray staff 
again next year. 




1 was interested to 
see all of the events 
and organizations I 
was not involved 
in. It was so fun to 
document the past 
year in photo- 
graphs. However, 
as you might know. 
it was a lot more 
work than I 
originally thought, 
but it was worth it.
