The West Virginia University School of Medicine is recruiting Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation physicians for our Departments of Orthopaedics and Neurosurgery. These are two distinct opportunities, one in Morgantown, WV and the other in Martinsburg, WV. Both carry a faculty appointment with the WVU SoM.

In the Department of Orthopaedics, the physician will provide in-patient consults at WVU Medicine's anchor hospital, Ruby Memorial Hospital, in Morgantown, WV. In-patient services will also be provided at HealthSouth Mountainview Regional Rehabilitation Hospital adjacent to the WVU School of Medicine campus. Morgantown is consistently rated as one of the best small metropolitan areas in the country for both lifestyle and business climate. The area offers the cultural diversity and amenities of a large city in a safe, family-friendly environment. There is also an excellent school system and an abundance of beautiful homes and recreational activities.

The Department of Neurosurgery has openings at our Berkeley Medical Center location in Martinsburg, WV. The physician will be an integral member of a growing interdisciplinary group of specialists creating a regional spine/neuromuscular center servicing this rapidly growing region in the eastern panhandle and surrounding quad-state needs. Significant infrastructure has been built and will continue to be built by WVU anticipating future needs and steering those needs on par with the mission of WVU Medicine: to provide easy access to the highest quality healthcare. Over 180 new physicians have been added to the medical staff at Berkeley Medical Center in the last few years. The eastern panhandle is located in the scenic Shenandoah Valley and has a relaxing atmosphere, full of history, with the charm of a small community. Only 1 hour drive to Baltimore and D.C, Martinsburg is ideally located, with all the amenities of a large city, but in an affordable location. The region continues to post the largest population growth rate in the state, over 56% in the last 20 years with its population younger and more educated than the state average. There is record economic growth in the region and 40% of residents hold jobs in neighboring northern VA, suburban MD, and downtown DC. The panhandle has the lowest unemployment rate in the state, and with the expanding high income population, continued commercial and industrial development is projected to continue along the I-81 corridor.

Successful candidates must have an MD, MD/PhD or DO degree (the employer accepts foreign educational equivalent) and be eligible to obtain an unrestricted West Virginia medical license. Candidates must have completed an accredited physical medicine and rehabilitation residency program at the time of appointment. Responsibilities will include providing excellent patient care as well as teaching medical students and residents. Biomechanical and basic science research opportunities are also available.
