An overview of cardiology research at Charleston Area Medical Center.

For over 40 years, Charleston Area Medical Center has partnered with WVU-Charleston Division and is proud to collaborate on research to improve the lives of the people living in our local and surrounding communities. The CAMC Health Education and Research Institute is a subsidy of Charleston Area Medical Center (CAMC).  Not only does the CAMC Institute provide continuing medical education to residents, students, and allied health professionals training at CAMC, it also provides research support to physicians and medical health professionals throughout West Virginia and the region.

CAMC’s status as a teaching hospital helps the institution to remain at the forefront of top quality care and innovative research.  Many of those in practice here are also faculty members of the West Virginia University Charleston Division School of Medicine.  The collaboration of Charleston Area Medical Center and West Virginia University in this effort is multi-faceted. Patients benefit from a synergy of resources that provide excellence in care. Area physicians’ ability to provide care is enhanced by the educational and consulting services available and new physicians are trained to provide outstanding, comprehensive health care while contributing to the scientific basis of medicine.

A commitment to medical research is one of the CAMC / WVU affiliation’s defining strengths.  The knowledge generated by this important exploration yields the groundwork for tomorrow's most promising clinical applications. Research focuses on preventing diseases (preventative healthcare), improving patient outcomes, and evaluating health services (quality of care).
