Congratulations to John Linton !!!
associate vice president for health sciences and campus dean of the School of Medicine, West Virginia University

John LintonFrom the Press Release:

Since early this year, he has been serving with great distinction in these interim positions, and has shown the sort of leadership and dedication that his department, the School of Medicine, and the Charleston Division have learned to expect from him in his many decades of clinical, educational and administrative work at WVU.

“John Linton was the obvious choice for this position, and for more reasons than one,” said Arthur J. Ross, III, MD, MBA, dean of the WVU School of Medicine. “His years of service with the organization, his dedication to faculty and students in the Charleston division and his gift for connecting those relationships among our three campuses made him the best candidate.”

Dr. Linton is also well positioned to advance our relationship with our partners at Charleston Area Medical Center. Sharon Hall, the president, CAMC Health Education and Research Institute, said, “Dr. Linton is not only recognized nationally as a leader in psychology education, he’s universally respected as a leader on the Charleston campus and throughout CAMC.  On behalf of CAMC, we are excited about his appointment and I am personally looking forward to working with John in his new role.”
