Giving Back

Just as WVSOM faculty and staff are committed to providing a foundation of excellence for every student physician who walks through our doors, WVSOM's Alumni Association is committed to each graduate taking the next step on his or her professional journey. We do this in a variety of ways:

  • Educational events to provide you with continuing medical education – in West Virginia and beyond our borders – where you and your fellow graduates can learn, engage and reconnect.
  • We help you keep in touch with friends and classmates through alumni gatherings at state and national meetings, as well as alumni weekends here on the Lewisburg campus.
  • We work tirelessly to stay connected with you and to the issues which are important to you, collaborating on WVSOM's award-winning magazine and providing Class Notes and alumni profiles to keep you informed of the personal and professional events of importance in the lives of your fellow alums.

But that's not all. The Alumni Association supports each generation of osteopathic physicians from the minute they join our ranks – with scholarship funding, white coats and more. But we cannot do it without your help. It takes a community of engaged alumni committed to making the school and its graduates ever better; ever stronger.

Ways to Give Back

Please consider one of these valuable ways to give back:

Membership in the WVSOM Alumni Association

Your contribution supports the white coat ceremony, scholarships and grant programs for students and faculty. You will be among the first to learn of upcoming alumni receptions, CMEs, as well as information regarding OMED and ACOFP Conventions.

Alumni Association General Donation

Contributions given to the WVSOM Alumni Association General Donation fund allows the Alumni Association the flexibility to direct funding to current and priority needs, and to take advantage of opportunities as they arise.

These funds allow your donation to support the greatest needs of WVSOM and the Alumni Association while advancing its mission. 

Alumni Association Scholarship Fund

Contributions given to the WVSOM Alumni Association Scholarship Fund will be used to support the Alumni Association scholarships given each year to current WVSOM students. 

Alumni Commemorative Brick

Buy a real brick and pave the Alumni Walk with a marker commemorating your graduation, a current student or a faculty member who touched your life. 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, consider contributing a personalized bench to the WVSOM campus. It's a beautiful gift that will be here to welcome you with every return – your own special place to pause and reflect.
