When asked about other accomplishments during his tenure as division chief, Dr. Silver notes he is proud of the fact that during his tenure and that of Dr. LeRoy, the division graduated more than 85 fellows, several of whom have gone on to become division directors themselves, including the late Joseph Korn, MD (Boston University), Bashar Kaheleh, MD (University of Toledo), and JoAnn Hornsby, MD (West Virginia University).

Dr. Silver is also very proud of the fellows who have gone on to become Fellowship Program Directors: Marcy Bolster, MD (Massachusetts General Hospital), Leslie Staudt, MD (University of Texas, San Antonio), and Faye Hant, DO (MUSC).
Dr. Oates, a former fellow, reflects that one reason he “put his hat in the ring” for the position was its people: “Dr. Silver has built a strong nationally—and in some cases internationally—recognized division and has nurtured a culture of dignity and respect among the faculty.”
Dr. Ruth points out these high-quality researchers “came here because of Rick. He’s an extraordinarily good leader. He’s been around MUSC for so many years that he knows how to navigate [the system] and get things done.”
