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.

BBS is an integrated training program that crosses several departments and colleges at WVU. Faculty preceptors and doctoral trainees are drawn from Biology, Biomedical (HSC), Psychology, Public Health and Health Outcomes (Pharmaceutical Systems and Policy) Ph.D. Programs. Ph.D. students in any of these programs can apply for appointment to the BBS at the end of their first year.

WVU Healthcare's Epilepsy Center has been re-designated as a level 4 center by the National Association of Epilepsy Centers (NAEC). The re-designation certifies that WVU Healthcare provides an interdisciplinary and comprehensive approach to the diagnosis and treatment of patients with epilepsy, with the team's primary goal of achieving complete control or at least a reduction in the frequency of seizures and/or medical side effects in patients with intractable epilepsy.

For those WVU School of Medicine women faculty who are interested in applying, assistance is available through the HSC Women In Science and Health (WISH) Committee. Those interested in using the WISH Committee's services to complete the application process, including the letter of support and tuition assistance, should email gmarshall@hsc.wvu.edu.
