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.

The Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME) survey team conducted an accreditation site visit at the WVU School of Medicine February 23-26, which included time spent at the Charleston and Eastern campuses.

Charles L. Rosen, M.D., Ph.D., chair and professor in the WVU Department of Neurosurgery was recently elected to serve on the American Association of Neurological Surgeons (AANS) Board.

In recognition of February as National Heart Month, WVU Healthcare experts will discuss the importance of keeping your ticker in tip-top shape and more on the next episode of “Doctors on Call,” which will air live at 8 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 26 on West Virginia Public Television.

In keeping with WVU Healthcare’s commitment to providing exceptional patient care, the WVU Heart Institute has acquired new, state-of-the-art cardiac imaging technology to diagnose and treat cardiovascular disease, the nation’s No. 1 killer.

During my pharmacy rotations I found myself chasing down the next procedure and staring at MRIs and CT scans. I developed a passion for the diagnostic end of medicine.
