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.

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.
