Welcome to the Infirmary

The Virginia Department of Health continues to report illnesses caused by influenza and stomach viruses.    

You can reduce the chance of getting sick by frequent hand washing and covering your cough. If you develop a fever, nausea, vomiting or diarrhea, come to the Infirmary for evaluation.

Newly renovated, the VMI Infirmary is a modern medical facility on Post open 24 hours a day throughout the academic year.  A team of nurses, a Nurse Practitioner, and a Physician evaluates and treats cadets for routine illnesses and injuries.  There are 18 inpatient beds for overnight observation and isolation for those cadets who cannot comfortably or safely stay in barracks.  Cadets with more severe illnesses are referred to the local hospital or a specialist for care.

There is no extra charge to visit the Infirmary, see the nurse, Nurse Practitioner or Physician.  Many medications are dispensed at no charge.  Lab tests ordered or appointments with providers off Post will be the responsibility of the cadet.
