    Anyone know anything about West Virginia SOM? I'm non-trad (much older) and interested in primary care, most likely in rural setting (though inner city would be fine too). Am bilingual (Span-English). Any other schools I should be looking at? Nova, of course, comes to mind.

    Think about PCSOM in Pikeville, KY. True commitment to primary care and love non-trads.

    HI
    I am a third year at WVSOM. Any specific questions I can answer?

    Their emphasis is rural primary care in Appalachia.

    Good luck! [​IMG]

    If you are truly interested in primary care in a rural setting, then Pikeville could be a great fit for your. Their entire emphasis is on primary care in rural and other underserved areas. As mentioned before, they also love nontraditional students. Pikeville is new, but has come together rather quickly. I'm in my 5th month on rotations and I have felt totally prepared, and this has been echoed by my preceptors and others.
    I also believe that the Arizona school states it has a committment to primary care, but I cannot personally state to what extent they go to meet this goal.
    Best of luck!
