Academic and Professional Standards Committee

Reviews the academic and professional progress of the students enrolled in the MD degree curriculum, as outlined in the Policy on Academic and Professional Standards governing the MD Degree Program.

Admissions Committee for the M.D. Degree

Attracts, evaluates, and selects the best possible medical student applicants for the MD degree program in keeping with the School of Medicine mission and values. It maintains a preference for West Virginia resident applicants who are qualified by their academic record, aptitude, character, and drive to become successful medical doctors. Qualified non-resident applicants with the same qualities will also be considered for admission. Preference for non-residents includes ties to WV, WVU, and/or a rural community or the Appalachian region, as it is believed that they are more likely to contribute to the health care programs of the state in the future.

This expertise and guidance enables the Office of CME to function as a nationally accredited provider of continuing medical education credit through the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education.
