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.

Two School of Medicine faculty members are being honored for years of service to medical education.

A. Paul Brooks, Jr., M.D., a 1966 graduate of the West Virginia University School of Medicine’s medical degree program, has been selected to receive the School’s 2015 Distinguished Alumnus Award.

After four years as the chair of the WVU School of Medicine Continuing Education (CE) Committee, Department of Anesthesiology Professor Robert E. Johnstone, M.D., has retired from that role. The Office of Continuing Education recently hosted a reception for Johnston, who has served as the CE Committee chair since July 2011.
