The West Virginia University School of Medicine is the professional school for the study of medicine at West Virginia University in Morgantown, West Virginia. The medical school was established in 1902 as the first such institution in the state of West Virginia. It remains one of only three medical schools in the state.

The school is organized into three campuses, formally called "Divisions". The main Morgantown Division hosts both academic and clinical campuses; all M.D. students spend their first two years there.
