Pamela Pyle is a Board-Certified Internal Medicine physician who studied at Oklahoma State University, North Texas Health Science Center and completed her training at Baylor University in Houston. She was one of three physicians selected in 1992 by Carolina Health Specialists (CHS) to begin the first hospital based internal medicine practice outside of a university setting in the United States.
In 2018 Dr. Pyle began work on her first book, A Good Death: Learning to Live Like You Were Dying. She recognized that the dying are often our greatest teachers, and she desired to be a great student. Her intent with the book was (and is) to reach a larger audience with answers to the common questions she has received from patients and their families throughout her medical career. Sparked by one dying woman’s declaration that she would have “a good death,” Dr. Pyle has continued to pose the questions, “How is that possible? What exactly makes for a good death?” and then discovers the answers reveal more about life than dying or death.
Dr. Pyle is a speaker at national and international events around the topics of global health equity, women’s discipleship, and matters that make for “a good death”.
Pamela is a wife, mother to five, grandmother to seven, with one on the way, adventurer at heart, author, poet, and “Reckless Dreamer.” She and her husband, Scott, call South Carolina home and their second home is an airplane seat somewhere in the sky while on the way to fulfilling their purposes
