Through research, education, and health promotion, CAMC/WVU-Charleston Division aims to improve the health of our patients and community.
Knowledge in patient care equals strength in research. Currently, there are about 450 research studies being carried out by CAMC/WVU-Charleston Division physicians, faculty, residents, and students. This research takes many forms. Research includes clinical trials looking at new treatments as well as studies using hospital data to learn how to improve patient care. Research also includes the patient. Patients may be asked to complete forms or surveys to measure quality and satisfaction.
Some areas of research include:
Internal Medicine (Heart Disease, Osteoporosis, Geriatrics)
Nephrology (Kidney Disease)
