The department of pediatrics at West Virginia University’s Charleston Division is part of the clinical campus division of West Virginia University School of Medicine in Morgantown, WV, with a clinical training ground made up of undergraduate, graduate, and professional degree programs to prepare its students for a future in the field of health care. The extraordinary array of real-life, hands-on experiences, bring you an unsurpassed education in advanced patient care, diagnosis treatment, disease prevention, health and wellness.

In conjunction with the Charleston Area Medical Center, a comprehensive regional healthcare institution in the heart of West Virginia, our faculty, staff, and infrastructure are dedicated to serving infants, children, and adolescents and their families. We create an environment that promotes healthy development provides reassurance and comfort, fosters healing, and enables our young patients to maintain a primary focus on their lives as children and students rather than on their disease or impairment. By educating both the current and future generations of child health providers, we promote the development of excellent clinical skills, humanistic qualities, and commitment to professionalism. Our research efforts are designed to advance scientific knowledge, provide state-of-the-art care, and serve as a national model for health promotion, disease prevention, and health care delivery to rural children.
