The GW Department of Pharmacology & Physiology has a long history of dedication to excellence in teaching at all levels, including to professional students (medical and physician assistant students), graduate students (through the GW Institute for Biomedical Sciences) and undergraduates. All of our faculty members play active and often leadership roles in teaching throughout the University. Dr. Werling is head of the GW Institute for Biomedical Science, our Ph.D. graduate program. Drs. Ceryak, O'Brien and Yarbrough are educational leaders in the recently revised medical student curriculum.
