Humanitarian Medical Missions

SURF enables EVMS Residents and Fellows to travel to domestic and international locations in need of urological care. These humanitarian medical missions provide once in a lifetime access for some of the world’s neediest patients.

Innovative Research

SURF allows local physicians and researchers to discover innovative treatments that help patients here in Hampton Roads and beyond. Funding from SURF makes it possible for graduate medical students to attend educational events and present the outcomes of their research to regional and national audiences.

SURF also works to diversify access to clinical trials so that outcomes will benefit us all.
