The accredited surgical residency is jointly directed by West Virginia University/Charleston Division and Charleston Area Medical Center.

Located in West Virginia's capital city, the 900-bed tertiary care medical center is composed of three divisions and draws patients from both urban and rural areas, offering our team a diversity hard to find elsewhere. Because CAMC's service area spans the southern half of the state, provides a wide range of specialty services and draws a broad range of challenging referrals.

The five-year non-pyramidal program is designed to produce a balanced general surgeon equally capable of practicing in academic or community hospital settings.

Training includes significant practice in trauma and critical care, gastroenterology (including nutrition and endoscopy), surgical oncology and cardiothoracic surgery.

The average experience for chief residents finishing the program is over 800 major cases as primary surgeon or teaching assistant. Average total case experience per resident is approximately 1,200 cases in five years-more than fulfilling the requirements of the American Board of Surgery in number, mixture and complexity. Most call is covered by a dedicated night float rotation and on rotations where it is not, call duty averages every third to fifth night, depending on the post-graduate level.
