PERU — Dr. Brandon Musgrave, an ear, nose and throat specialist on the medical staff at Illinois Valley Community Hospital in Peru, has been certified by the American Board of Otolaryngology (ABOto).

Musgrave joined the IVCH medical staff in August 2013 after completing an otolaryngology residency at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit. He is a magna cum laude graduate with a degree in chemistry from the University of Illinois in Champaign-Urbana, and graduated in the top third of his medical school class from the Loyola University Chicago Stritch School of Medicine.

Board certification is a voluntary program in which specialists seek to improve their performance and demonstrate a commitment to their profession, according to an ABOto statement. Board certified otolaryngologists must meet ABOto training requirements, pass psychometrically validated examinations, and participate in the board’s maintenance-of-certification process.

Musgrave’s office is in the IVCH Medical Group ENT, Allergy and Sleep Center located in the lower level of Building B across West Street from the hospital. Appointments can be made by calling 815-223-4400.
