WVU medical faculty and students are at the leading edge of scientific studies of the biological processes of life and at the forefront of efforts to bring health advances to residents of West Virginia's cities and rural areas. The School of Medicine serves students who want to study medicine, physical and occupational therapy, laboratory science, exercise physiology, research and graduate education and more.
At the West Virginia University School of Medicine, we educate health professionals, provide thousands of people with medical care, and conduct lifesaving research. Our students work side-by-side with doctors and scientists in the University's modern hospitals, clinics and laboratories.
As one medical school with three campuses, our students also have a chance to learn from professionals that practice at medical offices, clinics and hospitals across the state.
WVU’s Occupational Medicine program provides residency training for physicians, multi-disciplinary services to meet the health and safety needs of workers and employers, and conducts a wide variety of research on health issues in the workplace.
