West Virginia School of Osteopathic Medicine

More than a Mission Statement

To us it’s not just another mission statement. It’s a living and breathing principle that guides each and every member of the WVSOM family to produce the best educated, most caring and compassionate osteopathic physicians in the world:

“The mission of the West Virginia School of Osteopathic Medicine (WVSOM) is to educate students from diverse backgrounds as lifelong learners in osteopathic medicine and complementary health related programs; to support and develop graduate medical education training; to advance scientific knowledge through academic, clinical and basic science research; and to promote patient-centered, evidence based medicine. WVSOM is dedicated to serve, first and foremost, the state of West Virginia and the health care needs of its residents, emphasizing primary care in rural areas.”
