WVU plans for phased return to campuses for fall 2020 semester. Visit Return to Campus: Health Sciences for information. Visit coronavirus.wvu.edu for the latest regarding COVID-19.


The first student members will be selected from the Class of 2010 in the summer of 2009 near the completion of the third year of the curriculum. There will be one chapter for the School of Medicine with membership from all three clinical campuses located in Morgantown, Charleston and Martinsburg. Each year the chapter will select a maximum of six resident and two faculty members.

Members elected are recognized for their outstanding demonstration of the ideals of humanism and names will be published on the chapter website to be maintained by the faculty advisors or Office of Student Services.

The Gold Humanism Honor Society at West Virginia University School of Medicine was made possible
with a grant from The Arnold P. Gold Foundation.
