High Professor to Student Ratio = More Individualized Attention

With a high professor to student ratio, professors can give each student the individualized attention and support needed for success. Every faculty member is a licensed Anesthesiologist or Certified Anesthesiologist Assistant with a successful clinical track record, navigating the same challenges you soon will. Many, like our department chair Dr. Robert Wagner — the first licensed CAA in Florida — are highly influential, holding senior leadership roles in national and state associations. Just as importantly, every professor is a caring, engaged educator, enthusiastic about guiding the next generation of CAAs forward.
