Students

Each year, approximately one-third of the medical students from WVU School of Medicine come to the Charleston campus to do their clinical training. West Virginia's largest hospital, the Charleston Area Medical Center provides state-of-the-art training facilities for students. A large number of patients, diverse clinical challenges, and fewer trainees allow for greater "hands-on" opportunities to highlight educational offerings. Fourth-year students from WVU and many other regional medicals schools come to Charleston for elective rotations. It's a great way to learn and get acquainted with CAMC/WVU's post-graduate (residency) programs. Convenient, modern student housing and a vibrant city, and nearby recreational outlets round out a student's experience at the Charleston campus of the WVU School of Medicine.
