About Kathryn Kasicky
Dr. Kathryn Kasicky grew up in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. She graduated from St. Mary’s College of Maryland in 2004 with a B.A. in Biology. She enjoyed several years on the college crew team and daily access to the St. Mary’s river. She then matriculated directly to Penn State College of Medicine in Hershey, Pennsylvania, completing her M.D. in May of 2008. During medical school, she was grateful for the opportunity to travel to Montana to work with the epidemiology section of the MT/WY Tribal Leaders Council researching breast cancer screening in the American Indian population within that state.
She completed residency in 2011 at Wake Forest Baptist Health and worked as a hospitalist with the inpatient oncology service at North Carolina Baptist Hospital in Winston-Salem for the following 4 years. She and her family moved to Morgantown in the summer of 2015 to help grow the hospitalist program at J.W. Ruby Memorial hospital.
She continues as a practicing hospitalist at Ruby, enjoying variety and acuity on the inpatient medical services. She is an active member of the hospital’s Complex Care Plan committee and MSA Pain committee and has a medical directorship with the Department of Medicine Inpatient Mission.
