The Department of Community Practice was established within the WVU School of Medicine in 2013. The Department is Chaired by C.H. Mitch Jacques, M.D., Ph.D. It is expected that the creation of this Department will better position WVU Medicine to:
- eliminate healthcare disparities across the state
- create a centralized approach to employing/aligning physicians practicing in the community
- create a centralized approach to partnering with other hospitals
- allow for better coordinated care regionally
Individuals and organizations interested in learning more about partnering with the Department are encouraged to reach out to its leadership team by phone at 304-598-6834 or email firstname.lastname@example.org .
