Diverse Experience Among Our Medical School Faculty
AUC's international medical school faculty have been trained in some of the world’s finest institutions and come from diverse research backgrounds in areas such as DNA research, neuropsychology, tropical parasitic disease and anti-cancer drug pharmacology. As a result, they are able to teach with authority, and by example.
Many of our faculty joined AUC after leading research initiatives at medical schools in the United States – many of them looking for the opportunity to focus more on teaching. However, many faculty continue to maintain vibrant research initiatives and publish and present their research findings at scientific conferences around the world.
Here is a sample of past experience and achievements of some of our faculty:
A decade of private practice in psychiatry in Manhattan
Former Chief Medical Officer for a regional chapter of the American Red Cross
