WVU Health Services Names James R. Campbell II, MD, Interim Dean for the WVU Health Sciences Charlston Campus

20 Aug, 2023

Clay Marsh, MD, chancellor and executive dean for WVU Health Sciences, announced that James R. Campbell II, MD, will serve as interim dean for the WVU Health Sciences Charleston Campus following the retirement of John C. Linton, PhD, longstanding dean, associate vice president and professor, effective September 1, 2023.

Dr. Campbell is the chair for the School of Medicine Charleston Campus Department of Internal Medicine and is an internal medicine specialist. Born and raised in West Virginia, Campbell is a graduate of the Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine at Marshall University and completed an internal medicine residency at Charleston Area Medical Center. Board certified in internal medicine, Campbell has served the WVU Charleston Campus academically and clinically in both internal medicine and vascular surgery and as associate professor, vice chair and associate program director of internal medicine.

Campbell is involved in teaching at many levels of medical education. As an internist and member of a skilled multidisciplinary team, he instructs a full complement of medical students, residents and fellows. His contributions to academics, patient care and research have been recognized among his peers by multiple awards and honors and through his many leadership and committee roles within the School of Medicine and at the Charleston Area Medical Center, where he is clinically affiliated.

Linton’s WVU career began on the main campus in Morgantown. He was among the early faculty members who helped establish the University’s Charleston campus as a teaching and clinical center. For more than 44 years he has directed the American Psychological Association accredited doctoral internship in Charleston, and for more than 29 years he has served as the director of the medical student clerkship. His work includes contributions related to obesity, bariatric surgery, psychological assessment in medical settings, professional issues, ethics and life-long competencies in clinical health psychology. He was the founding editor of The Health Psychologist and served as editor from 1979 to 1994.


About West Virginia University:

“As a land-grant institution, the wellness of West Virginians is one of our top priorities. It’s why our students participate in rural rotations. It’s why our physicians serve our community members. It’s why our technologies and treatments are state of the art.

Everything we do here ripples through the state. That’s why we’re also renewing our commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion. No matter who you are or where you’re from, you’re welcome here — and we’re here for you.

In each of its schools, Health Sciences has implemented Diversity and Inclusion teams, comprised of administrators, faculty, staff and students, to help navigate the ideas of “diversity and inclusion” and all their complexities. We want to be better.

Constantly improving our community — both in terms of wellness, and diversity, equity and inclusion — will be a challenge, but we’re Mountaineers. And we live for a challenge.

It’s time to come together and boldly pursue change for the good of all.

WVU Medicine offers 1,641 licensed beds across 10 hospitals. Consistently ranked as a top academic medical center, WVU Medicine offers a unique collaborative space for our faculty, staff and students to learn with real patients and delivering life-changing patient outcomes.

We believe the role of a great academic medical center is to solve real problems and improve the health of our citizens. Across all of WVU — not just at the Health Sciences campuses — that duty is woven throughout our educational, research and community service activities.

An alumnus of the School of Medicine, Clay Marsh, M.D., returned to West Virginia University to serve as executive dean of the school and provide leadership to all five health schools and its numerous health centers and institutes. In his position, Clay envisions a future for West Virginia that believes it should place an emphasis on wellness, mindfulness, mental health, community and preventive health approaches through every aspect of patient care and research.
