The Department of Anesthesia's “can-do” mentality along with all that our beautiful city has to offer creates a wonderful environment in which to train, work and live.

Meet Our Cardiothoracic Anesthesia Fellows

Cardiothoracic Anesthesia Fellows: 2022-2023

GravesMatt Graves, MD - Dr. Graves hails from the tiny town of Old Lyme, CT. He transplanted to Charleston in 2007 to attend The College of Charleston where he graduated with a degree in Psychology. While in college, Matt met the love of his life, Renee. They married in 2011. Matt worked in EMS for 3 years following college. He knew he wanted to become a physician, and he knew he wanted to study in Europe. These two dreams led Matt to Jagiellonian University Medical College in Krakow, Poland, where he graduated with honors in 2018. Matt is a 3rd generation physician in his family and is the first anesthesiologist. He and Renee have a passion for traveling and were able to travel to more than 30 countries during his time studying medicine abroad. Matt completed his residency here at MUSC and was a Chief resident during the 2021-2022 academic year. Matt’s wife Renee was born and raised in Charleston (like actually born in Charleston—at MUSC!) and works as the finance director for Dr. Annie Andrews for Congress. In their free time, Matt and his wife enjoy traveling; spending time with friends; rescuing old dogs; community outreach; political activism; and playing with their dogs Edmund, Tuna TarTare, Bacot, and Buckwheat.

FosterJohn Foster, MD - Dr. Foster is originally from Southwest Florida, where his family still resides. He attended Washington University in St. Louis as an undergraduate, then returned to Florida for medical school at the University of Florida. He then completed his anesthesiology residency at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. His wife and her family are from Charleston, so they moved to the area in 2021 to be closer to family and to enjoy everything Charleston and MUSC have to offer. He completed his Critical Care Anesthesiology fellowship at MUSC last year and is currently in his Cardiothoracic Anesthesiology fellowship. Dr. Foster enjoys fishing, spending time with family, and relaxing with his dog, Cooper. He looks forward to establishing himself in Charleston and to many more years at MUSC.
