About the Department

In the Department of Family & Community Health, we provide ongoing, comprehensive care for the individual and family during all stages of life. In addition to the knowledge required for board certification in family medicine, our physicians have a wide variety of specialty interests that are incorporated into the range of care we offer. We are honored to be able to use this breadth of knowledge to be a part of the pre-clinical and clinical medical education of students at the Marshall University Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine.

Training our community’s future physicians is important to us, and we take pride in the quality of teaching and mentoring our faculty provide. We’re also proud to be the home of the Robert C. Byrd Center for Rural Health, which strives to eliminate barriers to rural health care. We’re especially proud of our community health initiatives and programs, which help us improve the health of the people of West Virginia and surrounding areas.

Our Mission

The Department of Family & Community Health is to improve the health of the people of West Virginia and surrounding areas through education, service, and research. These activities will be carried out with an emphasis on rural and small-town communities and underserved peoples. The department intends to develop and implement innovative and effective methods of serving this population and be recognized as a model and example to others in advancing the health of such communities.
