Chairman's Welcome Message
I am so glad you are looking at our website in consideration of your Internal Medicine residency training. Much of my training and professional life has been at CAMC and in other places in West Virginia. Essential variables in your training are maturation and professional development which depends on you. You will have a great learning buffet here with an extraordinary variety of cases, superb dedicated physician teachers, a collegial supportive learning environment and great opportunities to grow your skills. My experiences in practice and academic medicine allow me to assure that if you partake of the pallet of experiences with diligence and dedication, you will be ready for anything--fellowship, hospitalist or practice. I received great training here and continue to learn new things decades later.
The programs in the medicine department are exploding with an expanding residency, multiple fellowships being added, more medical students and new faculty in many areas. The hospital's physical plant and educational facilities continue to grow with 48 additional special care beds and a dedicated new simulation/education building on the Memorial campus. Physician faculty practices are opening 2 new offices in the Summer of 2020. You will have traditional university type training mixed with outpatient experiences that includes real world exposures. From this type of experience, I have had the opportunity for a great education and the ability to continue to grow throughout my career.
This is an invitation to learn about our continually evolving programs and decide if you will flourish and grow to your potential with us. We have a great program and it is my hope, that if you decide it is right for you, then you will join us and fully apply yourself.
