Sarah Oros

 Ms. Oros is originally from Columbus, Ohio. She graduated from the University of Dayton with a B.S.in pre-medicine/minor in psychology. She moved across town to attend the Boonshoft School of Medicine at Wright State University. In medical school, she was struck by the number of patients who had comorbid medical and psychiatric illnesses. Inexplicably, a combined training seemed like the next step toward learning how to treat the whole person. In residency, she is a DART (Drug Abuse Research Training Program) Fellow, currently working on a project examining the attitudes of primary care providers toward medication assisted treatment for opioid use disorder. She is a med-psych co-chief with Allison. She also volunteers at a student run clinic for the uninsured. Her interests include primary care, psychotherapy, geriatrics, pain, addiction, and academics. She enjoys reading, hiking, gardening, baking (currently cupcakes), and perfecting her ramen recipe.

Allison Smith

I am originally from West Virginia and graduated from West Virginia University with BS in biology and psychology. I then attended medical school at WVU School of Medicine and graduated in 2014. I have always been interested in both internal medicine and psychiatry and an integrated/biopsychosocial approach to treating patients. I have been particularly drawn to the underserved population and interesting in improving quality of health care for medically, socially complicated patients. I also am interested in addiction, geriatrics, chronic pain, and depression, and home visits. I enjoy hanging out with family, going to the beach, exercising, and walking my dog.

Boris Kiselev

I was born in St. Petersburg, Russia but moved to the United States when I was young. I studied Neuroscience at William and Mary in Virginia, I was in the 2ndclass at the Virginia Tech Carillion School of Medicine. I was drawn to Med/Psych by the holistic approach to patient care, my love for both specialties, and because of the opportunity to work with an underserved population most in need of medical attention. In my free time I enjoy Jiu-Jitsu, the beach, working out, reading, and hanging out with other residents and friends in Charleston.

Mary Stoermann

Ms. Stoermann received her medical degree from the Edward Via College of Osteopathic Medicine Carolinas Campus.

Cam Mateus

 I am originally from Bogota, Colombia. I grew up half in NYC and half in southern SC. I went to Wake Forest University for undergraduate and MUSC for medical school. I have been exposed to many different cultures and lifestyles. Seeing how fellow immigrants struggle with the adjustments to a new place, I have become compelled to understand how psychosocial stresses predispose people to many future medical illnesses. I chose an internal-medicine psychiatry residency to become a physician who is dedicated to treat patients’ medical/psychiatric co-morbidities within their cultural context. My ideal future career would be an academic physician who teaches future generations of physicians to treat psychiatric and medical illnesses simultaneously in order to have more robust positive impacts on their patients’ health. My academic interests are in public/population health, cultural psychiatry, and integrated psychiatric-medical primary care. Internal Medicine-Psychiatry residency at MUSC is full of dually trained faculty and residents who value diversity and foster who we hope to become as physicians. Outside of medicine, I enjoy spending time with my co-residents and friends by acting as tourists in our own city. I love trying new restaurants and writing reviews, or outdoor recreation such as bicycling, kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding, or being out on a boat. I frequently enjoy walking my dog through the historic streets and parks of Downtown Charleston.

Mike Norred

Mike received his undergraduate degree from Central Florida. He graduated with a medical degree from the University of Central Florida College of Medicine.

Chelsea Shepherd

 I come from rural Southern Ohio - a place called Willow Wood - located just across the Ohio River from West Virginia and Kentucky. I grew up on a small farm and an apple orchard with my dad, a self-taught electrician and maintenance supervisor, and my mom, a secretary for the county courthouse. After graduating from Symmes Valley High School in 2007, I became a first generation college student when I enrolled into Marshall University in Huntington, West Virginia. I graduated from Marshall University in 2011 and received a bachelor’s degree in biomedical sciences and biochemistry. Later, I completed my medical school education and training at The Ohio University Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine in Athens, Ohio. As a senior medical student, I spent an additional year working for the medical college, teaching first and second year medical students, designing and implementing parts of the curriculum, and receiving supplemental training in academic medicine. One of my core philosophies as a physician is to treat the patient, not the disease. I believe that every person is a unit of body, mind, and spirit and all of those elements are interconnected. Ultimately, combined training in internal medicine and psychiatry felt like a natural path for me. In pursuing it, I hope to improve access to both primary care and psychiatry in rural, underserved areas like my home community. My academic interests include addiction, substance abuse, hospice and palliative care, transgender Health care, women’s Health care, rural medicine, and academic medicine. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family (including my little Italian Greyhound dog named Nero) and friends, playing video games, watching movies, painting, gardening, making craft projects, traveling, and photography.

John Smith

 I was born in Tylertown, MS. I attended the University of Alabama at Birmingham where I majored in Chemistry. I went to medical school at Howard University. I am very interested in studying and treating the psychiatric effects of chronic illness. I really enjoy inpatient medicine and outpatient psychiatry. I eventually want to incorporate my training into medical communications to educate minority populations on the importance of mental illness as it relates to illness as a whole from a medical and psychiatric stand-point. In my spare time, I like to spend time with family/friends, go to the beach, and write.
