What is the President's Circle 

The President’s Circle recognizes donors committed to empowering WVSOM to be a leader in medical education by supporting the school financially. In doing so, members of the President’s Circle help WVSOM students achieve the educational goal of becoming osteopathic physicians by expanding their knowledge with cutting-edge equipment and experiences, fostering their potential, and assisting them in pursuing their ambitions for a better future for themselves, their patients and their communities.

What is the Purpose?

Donors who contribute a one-time gift of $5,000 or more annually, unrestricted, or toward a special project or endowment will be recognized in the President’s Circle.

The President’s Circle Supports:

  • Develop a robust and diverse network committed to increasing student success and academic excellence through student-centered instruction, student-centered support services, and dynamic technologies.
  • Help support existing and future innovative programs to give students state-of-the-art training experiences and to assist students in competing for residency programs.
  • Monetary support for students facing challenges such as financial, health, or security-related crises. This support allows students to continue their studies while facing these life uncertainties. When students are faced with unforeseen circumstances, the Foundation can provide funding for things like emergency shelter, supplies, and funds.
