WVU's Medical Degree Program is composed of a diverse student body that is prepared for a range of medical career options in order to become physician leaders who can advance biomedical research and improve local, national, and global health. This is accomplished through curriculum in which students learn the core basic sciences in the first and second years and complete core clinical clerkships and scholarly investigation in the third and fourth years.
Students entering the M.D. Program complete their first two years at the Morgantown campus and their remaining two years at either the Morgantown, Charleston or Eastern campus, depending on their assignment upon admission. Each campus experience offers a unique opportunity to engage in the local community and participate in clinical rotations at various partner hospitals and clinics around the state.
The WVU School of Medicine encourages a vibrant, close-knit community across our three campuses in an environment where ideas and interests can be freely shared. We encourage students to express their unique personalities and this in turn paints a distinctive picture found at few other campuses across the country.
