Kim Seal, DO - PGY 7
Undergrad: Maryville College – B.A. Biology
Graduate: University of Tennessee – Secondary Education
General Surgery Residency: Charleston Area Medical Center
Why CAMC: I chose CAMC for the case complexity and volume. The attending expertise and camaraderie is unlike many places you’ll see. The ability to serve a patient population with complex comorbidities was also appealing.
Hobbies: Hanging out with my dog and cats and spending time with my growing family. Watching TN Vols.
About me: I went to medical school to be able to better serve underserved populations and hope to continue to do so with the vast surgical knowledge I’ve gained at CAMC.
Andrew Lee, MD - PGY 5
College: Bob Jones University – B.S. Biochemistry
Why CAMC: When applying for vascular residency programs, I wanted to train at a place that had patients with severe vascular disease (with all the associated co-morbidities), large case volume, and variety. CAMC offers all the above with the added benefit of great clinical and operative autonomy, excellent faculty, and virtually no competition from IR, interventional cardiology, or transplant surgery.
Hobbies: Video games, cheering for all Wisconsin sports teams, Peloton, working out, basketball, football, golf, building computers.
About me: I was born and raised in Milwaukee, WI and am an avid Wisconsin sports fan (I am a co-owner of the Green Bay Packers). I ended up in Greenville, SC for college and medical school and moved here to Charleston, WV for vascular training! I love spending time with my wife and daughter, eating and drinking with friends, and pretending to be good at golf.
