The Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) has approved CAMC for a Pulmonary Critical Care Medicine fellowship. This three-year program will begin July 1, 2020, and is approved for three fellows per year. The fellowship will provide training in pulmonary and critical care medicine for inpatients as well as outpatients, including advanced bronchoscopy and critical care interventions.
The training program builds on the years of clinical expertise offered by nearly 20 CAMC pulmonary critical care faculty and has a long-standing culture of academic excellence at its foundation.
Successful applicants will be residents or recent graduates of internal medicine training programs who wish to obtain rigorous, comprehensive subspecialty training in the area of pulmonary and critical care.
Dr. Rayan Ihle will serve as the fellowship director. Ihle is board certified in internal medicine, pediatrics, pulmonary medicine and critical care medicine and is an assistant professor at WVU-Charleston.
"I am very excited and honored to lead this program. Not only does it improve opportunities for subspecialty training as the second pulmonary critical care program in the state, but it also serves our mission of providing the best care to West Virginians in an area of medicine that is in high need. I look forward to the challenge in front of us and thank CAMC for their support in this endeavor," Ihle said.
