As you know, choosing the right medical school is not a decision to be taken lightly. At Western Atlantic University School of Medicine (WAUSM), we believe it is one that should, when possible, involve the entire family.

We thank you for taking the time to learn more about the extraordinary opportunities that await your son or daughter as a student at WAUSM.

Headed by Dr. Joseph Flaherty, dean emeritus of the University of Illinois College of Medicine and one of the most respected academic leaders in US medical education, our leadership team’s commitment to educating outstanding, patient-centered physicians of the future is the foundation upon which our medical school is built.
