High School Programs

Pipeline activities are conducted for high school students to introduce them to rural/underserved medicine opportunities in West Virginia.

Through these pipelines high school students have toured the WVSOM campus and been introduced to osteopathic medicine and the wide variety of medical related fields in an effort to spark an interest in health care careers.
