Outpatient Telemedicine Clinics
The Department of Pediatrics has over a decade of experience providing telemedicine consultations and they continue to expand their service offerings.
They currently provide outpatient pediatric clinics in the following specialties:
The Department of Behavioral Medicine and Psychiatry, in conjunction with WVU Mountaineer Doctor Television (MDTV), currently operates 35 telepsychiatry clinics throughout the state of West Virginia. These clinics provide child and adolescent, adult, and addiction related psychiatric services to clients in nineteen counties with extensive catchment areas extending past county borders. Addiction related services also include provision of much needed care to pregnant mothers. Services have expanded to include the education of rural clinic providers and psychiatry residents. Future plans for further expansion include provision of services to nursing homes, rural schools and teletherapy which are all designed to minimize usage of limited patient and local resources and maximize treatment potential for the future.
In addition to the services listed above, the Department of Behavioral Medicine also provides Teleforensic Evaluations for two mental health institutions in the state of West Virginia.
