Accepted applicants without a previous MPH degree will need to complete a separate application to the Master of Public Health (MPH) program and will be discussed closer to the time of admission.

Applicants must be:

  • Graduates of an LCME accredited medical school
  • International Medical Graduates (IMG) with a current ECFMG certification
  • MUST be a US citizen or permanent resident

We do NOT offer the clinical year, hence all applicants must  have completed at least one clinical year in an ACGME-accredited residency training program.

A personal interview is required, which will give the applicant an opportunity to meet the faculty/staff in the department as well as view the Morgantown area. 

Interviews are by invitation only. Once the application is completed, the candidate will be invited by phone or e-mail to schedule an interview date.

Preference is given to civilian candidates who are likely to remain in the Appalachian region or other underserved rural areas.
