We are currently seeking EM physicians in the subspecialties of Sports Medicine, EMS, and Pediatric Emergency Medicine.

The Department of Emergency Medicine at WVU maintains a thriving clinical practice—including West Virginia University Hospitals/Ruby Memorial Hospital (52,000 visits/year, Level 1 Trauma Center), United Hospital Center (55,000 visits/year), St. Joseph's Hospital (25,000 visits/year), two WVU Urgent Care centers, WVU Student Health, WVU International Travel Clinic, and an internal locum tenens practice.  Across this myriad of EM practices, our faculty, fellows, residents, and advanced practice providers care for more than 300,000 patients per year.

Our Department is home to a competitive residency program of 30 residents—attracting top-notch housestaff from medical schools across the country.  We also offer a state-of-the-art emergency ultrasound fellowship and sports medicine programs —again attracting some of the brightest and most skilled young emergency physicians from around the country. 

The nearly 65 faculty members, 1 fellow, 30 residents, and 30 advanced practice providers in the Department are engaged in a host of investigative research projects.  Departmental research in the areas of sepsis, stroke, Emergency Department-based HIV and hepatitis C testing, medical education, point-of-care ultrasound, and others has culminated in important, original contributions to the peer-reviewed medical literature.
