About Us

At WVU Family Medicine, we strive to improve the health of West Virginians and all we serve through patient care, training family physicians, and research.

The department's Family Medicine Residency Program features comprehensive clinical training for patients of all ages, based on innovation, teamwork, and quality. The excellent core faculty have developed an integrated behavioral medicine curriculum, a procedures clinic, a resident wellness program, and a weekly didactics series that works together to promote learning, camaraderie, and high quality care in a patient-centered environment. The new modern clinical facilities and fast-growing WVU hospital provide the highest quality physical environment for learning and care.

Our Student Programs feature a highly-rated required third year medical school clerkship, experiences at the STEPS Center, and the summer externship, among the many opportunities for students to experience family Medicine. The Rural Track, a medical school sponsored program, coordinates many activities with Family Medicine due to our mutual goals of providing the best rural training.

Advanced Primary Care Innovation Center hosts multiple novel programs to promote health, including  the multidisciplinary Primary Care Diabetes Clinic, the COPD/Asthma Clinic, the Annual Wellness Visits Training Program, and the Acupuncture program.   The Population Health Primary Care Fellowship, available to family medicine, medicine or pediatrics graduates, links with the WVU School of Public health in a team collaboration in education, advanced primary care, and population health.

Teamwork is involved in all we do. Our innovative clinic model, TeamCare based on the AMA Steps program and the Cleveland Clinic, uses medical assistants as scribes and prevention experts to provide more comprehensive care, prevention, and personalized care of the patient.

The residents, students, attendings, advanced practice professionals and staff work together in the Clark. K. Sleeth Family Medicine Center to provide the highest quality care, recognized with national quality awards from NCQA.
