Carilion Clinic is looking for individuals who want to provide top-notch care in an environment where patient care and patient outcomes are of utmost importance. We want individuals who are passionate about teaching and truly enjoy passing their knowledge and experience to future generations of physicians. We strive to provide you with a work environment where financial and administrative worries are minimal, thus allowing you to focus and enjoy what you do daily.

Carilion Clinic s expanding Pulmonary and Critical Care Section is seeking 3 additional Pulmonary and Critical Care physicians for its Roanoke practice and 1 for its New River Valley practice. While most of the time will be spent on clinical duties, you will be working with residents and fellows during most of the time and therefore deeply involved in their training. A varied array of pathology provides an excellent set-up for teaching and for professional personal growth. We are part of an ACGME accredited Pulmonary and Critical Care fellowship which has 12 fellows, and we are starting a Critical Care fellowship.which will have 4 fellows. Academic conferences are held every week and all attendings are encouraged to participate. These provide for CME-MOC points and ensure all faculty stays up to date. We have also created a rotation schedule that allows our attendings ample opportunity to provide teaching at the bedside and with didactic lectures. Further our partnership with The Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine allows us to perform research and further academic growth, with all our faculty holding appointments at the medical school and participating in diverse related committees.

Carilion Clinic s hospital in Roanoke is the second largest hospital in the state and a level 1 trauma center with over 800 beds. With access to modern technology our subspecialty critical care units provide advanced care to the sickest patients even with availability of rescue therapies such as ECMO. A large Pulmonary Consult service makes for a dynamic rounding experience as it routinely encounters interesting diagnostic dilemmas with a varied array of pathology.


Carilion New River Valley Hospital in Christiansburg is a satellite State-of-the Art modern facility located about 45 minutes from Roanoke. It also offers a wide array of services, including a full pulmonary function test laboratory, advanced diagnostic bronchoscopy and a modern 12 bed Critical Care Unit with availability of bedside ultrasonography.

Our section also runs AASM accredited Sleep Centers throughout the region performing over 4000 studies every year.

Our Section is formed by a diverse and multicultural group which we have come to call our extended family. The group is very collegial and well-integrated and not only functions well at work but has multiple out of work social interactions. This dynamic has allowed us for continued growth and excellent physician retention.


As a physician lead organization, we have direct input into shaping the future of our operations and how to best integrate these with our group. The Section Chief works closely with the Chair of Medicine to advocate for the Pulmonary and Critical Care Faculty to ensure all needs are being met and to facilitate the clinical and academic growth of everyone.


Southwest Virginia provides an excellent environment for a peaceful and fulfilling life experience. Roanoke is the larger city in the region and has diverse activities and very good schools. The New River Valley is home to Virginia Tech University and with this provides multiple cultural venues and many sports related activities. For those that like sightseeing and outdoors activities, this is a hard to match area. Virginia s Blue Ridge Mountains with its parkway are spectacular areas for those that like hiking and biking. We boast one of the hardest marathons in the country, the Foot Levelers Blue Ridge Marathon and last year Carilion Clinic sponsored its first Ironman. Hunting is also abundant in the area and the close proximity to lakes and rivers (less than a 45-minute drive) welcomes those that like water activities, including fishing.

Additionally, cultural activities are diverse, with local orchestras and theaters, museums and a large convention center that hosts national and international artists routinely. And if you have an appetite for diverse cuisine the region has rapidly expanded and provides for excellent and diverse cuisines to include classic American and New Orleans cooking, French, Italian, Indian, Brazilian, Peruvian, Mexican, Thai, Chinese and Vietnamese food to name some. There are also multiple festivals that come to Roanoke, to include the Greek festival, Indian festival and the Craft Beer festival. A growing number of breweries with entertainment by local artists also provides for an excellent social venue.
