West Virginia University School of Medicine Charleston Campus welcomes its class of 2024.
WVU faculty and clinical faculty provide training and educational oversight to student clerkships, with nearly a third of third and fourth year WVU medical students coming to the Charleston campus to further their education. They join health care students in the disciplines of nursing and pharmacy who come through WVU’s Health Sciences Charleston campus to complete their clinical rotation requirements.
The WVU Charleston campus school of medicine includes the departments of behavioral medicine and psychiatry, family medicine, internal medicine, obstetrics and gynecology, pediatrics and surgery. Located on the Charleston Area Medical Center Memorial Hospital campus, strong clinical experience is provided at three hospitals within the CAMC system.
With a required rural health experience included in the curriculum, many graduates choose to make West Virginia their home and practice in the specialized field of rural medicine, helping to help meet our state’s pressing healthcare needs. Others join equally competitive residency and postdoctoral programs around the country. A WVU medical education can prepare the student for a challenging career in medicine, research and academia. Guided by our mission of transforming lives and eliminating health disparities, the WVU School of Medicine remains at the service of West Virginia and its people.
As one of the nation’s oldest regional medical education campuses, West Virginia University’s Charleston Campus is dedicated to educating caring health care professionals, providing research and offering services to improve the health of West Virginia citizens.
