The Mountain State OPTI
Mountain State Osteopathic Postdoctoral Training Institutions, Inc.(MSOPTI) or Mountain State OPTI was accredited by the American Osteopathic Association in June, 1999.
The consortium is comprised of a central member, the West Virginia School of Osteopathic Medicine, located in Lewisburg, West Virginia, and its partner training institutions. See Affiliated Hospitals for a list and locations of the MSOPTI partners.

- traditional osteopathic internship programs, and residency programs in:
- Emergency Medicine
- Family Medicine
- Internal Medicine
- Combined Emergency Medicine/Internal Medicine
