WVSOM Profile

WVSOM is a free-standing medical school nestled in the Allegheny Mountains. We are located in "America's Coolest Small Town" (Budget Magazine, 2011) just minutes from the famed Greenbrier Resort, a five diamond hotel and spa and host of the PGA’s annual Greenbrier Classic. WVSOM brings more than 40 years of history serving the health and wellness needs of the Greenbrier Valley, the state of West Virginia and beyond. The school’s small town, rural community cherishes its connection with the college and our students are actively engaged in service outreach and support for more than 40 nonprofit organizations in this area. Additionally, WVSOM faculty and staff enjoy a vibrant cultural community that features one of only four operating Carnegie Halls in the world, as well as the state professional theatre of West Virginia. Throughout the year, employees can enjoy live plays and musicals, a broad representation of visual artists, an annual chocolate festival, a flourishing literary series, and live music events within a historic preservation area featuring 19th century architecture, unique shops and dining, and limitless outdoor recreation. This one-of-a-kind environment brings together farmers and artists, lumbermen and world-renowned musicians, holistic physicians and thrill-seeking whitewater rafters in a diverse melting pot that is truly unique!

WVSOM Named A Great College to Work For in 2020!

The West Virginia School of Osteopathic Medicine (WVSOM) has been recognized for the eighth time as one of the best schools in the nation to work for, according to a survey by The Chronicle of Higher Education’s annual report on academic workplaces. The school has also been included on the 2020 Honor Roll, which is a distinction awarded to institutions that are cited most often across all recognition categories.  WVSOM was recognized in 9 out of 12 categories. 

Leslie Bicksler, WVSOM’s vice president of human resources, said that news of the recognition, even in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, is a testament to the value each employee brings to providing medical education to students. “This year, more than ever, it’s comforting to know that our employees are committed to WVSOM’s mission and confident in recognizing we have their best interest in mind,” she said. “Even during a pandemic, our employees know that their work is meaningful and important — and they know that they are important to us. It takes everyday actions, some big and some small, by employees to make a school a great place to work, and we couldn’t be happier that our employees acknowledge that.”

 WVSOM President James W. Nemitz, Ph.D., echoed Bicksler’s sentiment.  “Each person at WVSOM understands that the work they do plays an important role in educating future physicians. Our medical school makes it a point to let employees know they are valued for their contributions,” he said. “We want to foster an environment where people are excited to come to work and are passionate about meeting the mission of the school. I think we’ve done that, and continue to do that, as is evidenced by our faculty and staff recognizing WVSOM in so many different categories.”

The primary factor in deciding recognition was employee feedback through The Chronicle’s survey. WVSOM was one of 221 institutions participating in the survey.
