Each year, Outstanding Primary Care and Specialty Preceptor Awards are given to physicians from each of the seven Statewide Campus regions who have demonstrated excellence in teaching and mentoring. These health professionals have also demonstrated a commitment to community wellness and service.

There are 84 hospitals, clinics, and medical centers across West Virginia and surrounding states that participate in WVSOM’s Statewide Campus program.
