COM IM Pulmonary Division - 0564

Professional Summary

Dr. Jose graduated from the Johns Hopkins University in 2007, with a bachelors of Science degree in Biomedical Engineering. He then remained at the Johns Hopkins University to complete his medical school degree in 2012, followed by an internal medicine residency at the Johns Hopkins Hospital "Osler" Internal Medicine Program from 2012-2015. He subsequently completed a fellowship in pulmonary and critical care medicine from the George Washington University, before joining the faculty at the University of Cincinnati as a Clinical Instructor, pulmonary hypertension specialist, and IMSTAR fellowship recipient in 2018

His academic interests include the diagnosis and evaluation of pulmonary hypertension, particularly those comorbid with cardiac or pulmonary parenchymal diseases, as well as the response to exercise in pulmonary vascular disease. He is currently involved in a number of clinical and translational research projects at the University of Cincinnati, and is also a member of the pulmonary hypertension assemblies of the American Thoracic Society and the International Society of Heart and Lung Transplantation.

Research and Practice Interests

Dr. Jose's research and clinical interests include pulmonary vascular diseases such as pulmonary arterial hypertension, an abnormal elevation in the blood pressure in the lungs that can be fatal. He is particularly interested in the complex interplay between pulmonary hypertension, abnormal exercise physiology and functional capacity, and underlying cardiac or pulmonary diseases such as heart failure and interstitial lung disease.
