OUR MISSION

Providing world-class heart and vascular care to the state and beyond

Our mission is to provide the best possible heart and vascular care for our patients here in West Virginia, surrounding regions and beyond.

We are succeeding thanks to:

Support to our Military

WVU Medicine is proud to support training for key members of the department of defense medical community.  We have built a reputation as a destination of choice for US Army Special Forces Medical Sergeant clinical training and have established strong relationships with other DOD entities to explore future opportunities to assist with the training and development of clinical skills for our service members. West Virginia has a proud tradition of military service and a strong veteran support network and WVU Medicine and the CC&TI want to expand upon that tradition.

Section for Military and Austere Medicine and Surgery

Description: This section has been established to gather a community of interest in military programs and support to our veteran population.  It allows us to keep on file information about your interests, specialties and ability to assist with future programs and gives us a cadre to pull from when looking for assistance with the establishment or conduct or new training programs or opportunities.

The intent of this program is to become the hub for all military support and coordination between WVU School of Medicine and all DOD entities allowing for consolidated registration, credentialing or licensure for military members practicing at our facilities, as well as being a point of entry for military service members looking for educational opportunities such as transition to medical school, PA school or another WVU School of Medicine specialty.
