WVU Rural Health Day

The 3rd annual WVU Rural Health Day will be held on Spring 2018 at the WVU Health Sciences Center in Morgantown. 

The purpose of WVU Rural Health Day is to give pre-health students interested in rural medicine the opportunity to hear about and participate in activities that will enhance, impassion, and provide support in the sometimes daunting path to applying to medical school. Pre-medical undergraduate students will participate in hands-on workshops consisting of suturing, diagnostic ultrasound, simulated baby deliveries and pain management through acupuncture. There will also be a rural health panel discussion with rural physicians from across the state and a student-lead panel discussion. 

We invite undergraduate students at four-year colleges and universities or at community colleges completing pre-requisites for entry into a four-year college or university from West Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Virginia, and Kentucky to register for this opportunity. Check out the 2017 agenda to get an idea of what's in store for next year!
