FACULTY

Alhambra Medical University (AMU) faculty consists of all individuals employed by AMU who are engaged in instruction, scholarly and professional, or academic service activities for AMU. These activities include but are not limited to lab and class instruction, program (didactic, clinic), course and curriculum development, research, participation in student academic advising, and service to the profession.

Our distinguished faculty are diverse in their skills and specialties.  They are practitioners who are willing to share their knowledge and serve as student mentors and role models to prepare and support their students as primary care practitioners of the future.

AMU maintains three groups of faculties for its two programs:

● Core Faculty

Core faculty participate and provide leadership in the overall assessment process to ensure the institution is achieving its mission and objectives, as well as overseeing the process of achievement of competencies for students.

● Faculty

All other faculty who are responsible for student learning and assessment activities.

● Guest Faculty

Often subject area experts, guest faculty are invited to teach a course usually taught by designated faculty or core-faculty.
