Marshall University Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine Fast Facts
Marshall University’s Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine is a state-supported, community-based medical school established in 1977. Our faculty and administration are committed to providing high quality medical education and graduate training to meet the changing health care needs of our nation’s citizens. We specialize in rural health issues as expressed in special efforts to recruit students from rural West Virginia and place graduates in clinical practice in rural areas. Additionally, because we believe that a diverse population offers a rich environment that leads to greater knowledge, understanding, acceptance and mutual respect, we promote an inclusive environment by attracting, recruiting and retaining individuals who represent varying backgrounds and perspectives.
Significant improvements have been made in the research sector. Through strong interdisciplinary effort in the basic sciences, the medical school in 1990 received a National Science Foundation EPSCoR grant that has brought approximately $5 million to Marshall. This allowed the school to develop a core molecular biology facility for research. In 1993, the biomedical sciences program was named Marshall University's second Center of Excellence. In 1996, it was one of the three graduate programs statewide selected as Programs of Excellence. New facilities, a new research building at the Veteran's Affairs Medical Center and the new Medical Center Complex have greatly increased Marshall's efficiency and optimized patient care and clinical education.
The Robert W. Coon Education Building, named for the School of Medicine's second dean who was instrumental in its planning, design and construction, and commonly known as the MEB, is an 85,000 square foot, four story facility constructed in the late 1970's and located on the beautiful hill-top campus of the Huntington VA Medical Center (VAMC) eight miles west of downtown Huntington. The CEB houses the School of Medicine Department of Anatomy classrooms and facilities, faculty and research laboratories, Human Gift Registry and the Marshall University School of Pharmacy. The Marshall University Medical Center provides a technologically advanced focal point for the clinical teaching, outreach and service programs of the Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine. Opened in 1998, the 185,000-square-foot center is connected to Cabell Huntington Hospital and the Edwards Comprehensive Cancer Center through a shared atrium and multiple connectors.
