Faculty

We have an amazing faculty team in the MPAS Program. Together, just for the program’s principal and full-time faculty, we have nearly 100 years of combined medical practice experience in various medical settings. Additionally, all faculty are encouraged to remain active as medical clinicians, serving with the Mel Leaman Free Clinic at Emory & Henry College.
