Meet the Associate Program Director

Brady E. Kullen, DO

Dr. Kullen is excited to step into the role of Associate Program Director for the Marshall Rural Psychiatry Residency Program. Having earned his undergraduate degree at Mercyhurst University in Erie, Pennsylvania, he relocated to Pikeville, Kentucky, for medical school at the Kentucky College of Osteopathic Medicine. It was during this period that Dr. Kullen cultivated an appreciation for Appalachia and gained a profound understanding of the medical disparities faced by this population.  

This awareness was further solidified during his psychiatry residency at Marshall University, where he found fulfillment in building meaningful relationships with peers and valued the program's supportive atmosphere. After successfully completing his residency, Dr. Kullen eagerly joined the faculty of Marshall Psychiatry with the goal of enhancing the supportive training environment and helping residents make the most of their residency experience. 

Remaining steadfast in his commitment to serving the health care needs of underserved areas, Dr. Kullen is excited about guiding the training of future psychiatrists who can actively contribute to addressing the health care disparities prevalent in Appalachia.
