Research

The Robert C. Byrd Center for Rural Health supports focused, dynamic research projects, many of them ongoing, as researchers study and identify ways to improve health outcomes and the quality of healthcare delivery. Our goal is to develop self-sustaining and effective programs in rural West Virginia that serve as national, and even international, models.

Research and Education

Our core research program supports medical students, medical residents, and postdoctoral fellows in medicine and other fields in rural research projects. Students, residents and fellows lead these projects, mentored by faculty advisors. Many of the projects have resulted in state and national presentations, as well as publication in peer-reviewed journals.
