A new regional medical school campus is expected to launch next June in Charleston.

 

The initiative is a collaboration between the West Virginia School of Osteopathic Medicine and Charleston Area Medical Center who announced the two organizations had signed a letter of intent earlier this week.

 

Charleston Area Medical Center is providing space for the campus, including use of its existing training facilities, according to a press release.

 

Over the next year, the West Virginia School of Osteopathic Medicine will determine a curriculum for the campus, appoint accredited faculty and perform administrative functions at the site.

 

In a press release, CAMC chief executive officer David Ramsey said the collaboration is part of an effort to educate, recruit and keep highly trained health care providers in Southern West Virginia.
