In 2005, the Virginia Commonwealth University School of Medicine partnered with the Inova Health System to create the first regional branch medical campus in Northern Virginia. As a part of this partnership, the VCU School of Medicine Inova Campus accepts a minimum of twenty-four medical students from the third and fourth year classes annually. In an effort to better prepare the incoming students for their clinical years and an extremely diverse patient population, a video was created to demonstrate effective use of translator services.
