Faculty

“I, and my fellow faculty, view you not as medical students but as future colleagues, and we are excited to see where you will take our profession next.”
– Joseph A Flaherty, MD, President and Chief Academic Officer

A key differentiator that will make your medical school experience at Western Atlantic University School of Medicine (WAUSM) unique from any other is our talented and exceptional faculty, who have their fingers on the pulse of the ever-changing world of healthcare, and whose number one mission is to facilitate student success.

When it comes to earning your MD, what you learn is just about as important as who you learn it from. WAUSM faculty are at the helm of their departments as they guide students within an educational environment that encourages collaborative learning. They are learning coaches who encourage critical thinking through the debate of opinions to develop medical knowledge. And their collective, expert knowledge across a vast array of medical and scientific fields has given them unique insight into how to build a learning environment that meets the needs of medical student learners.

There are very few medical schools that can honestly claim that their faculty know each and every student by name, but WAUSM can. Our small class sizes allow us to give a truly personalized experience to students. And our faculty are committed to training students in an environment that is consistent with what they will see in the field, and have been key collaborators in building a medical school designed to educate the physicians of the future.
