The Office of Alumni Relations takes great pride in our graduates.

Our grads are the ones doing the real work in our nation’s hospitals, clinics and private practices.

It’s our grads who choose to practice in areas of our country that need doctors the most and work in the primary care fields so important to our nation’s health care system.

The quality of care WVSOM graduates deliver to the state and nation reflects positively on this institution.

Celebrate Your Graduate

Go beyond the pen with a lasting gift that will honor your graduate and give back to the next generation of WVSOM physicians. Consider one of these thoughtful gifts:

Alumni Commemorative Brick

Be a real brick and pave the Alumni Walk with a commemoration of your graduate and his class year. This gift is not just sand and mortar, but an investment in the school and its future.

Commemorative Bench

If you're looking for a unique gift to express how you feel, consider contributing a personalized bench in honor of your grad or an entire family of WVSOM doctors. It's a beautiful gift that will be here to welcome you with every return – your own special place on campus to pause and reflect.
