Scholarly Interest Groups

Scholarly interest groups (SIGs) are composed of multiple individual faculty members who share an interest in a particular phenomenon, a methodology, a patient population, common variables or tools, a geographic location, or any other subcategory that falls within health sciences. SIGs are formed and maintained to provide colleagueship and networking opportunities for their members, to facilitate scholarship and support pedagogy, and to provide mentoring in a particular area. SIGs are considered working groups with defined goals and measurable outcomes.

At WVU School of Nursing, SIGs have made significant contributions to the discipline in the form of grant submissions, research funding, presentations, publications, and partnership-building. Any member of the WVU Health Sciences or WVU Medicine faculty, staff, or student body may join a SIG.
