Portrait of David A. Milling, University at Buffalo medical education expert.

David A. Milling can speak to the media about all aspects of medical education, including efforts to promote medicine as a career among underrepresented populations. He can also discuss multicultural affairs and cultural competency in medicine, and the impact and root causes of health disparities in underserved communities.

He oversees medical school operations such as admissions, multicultural affairs and cultural competency, student services, and clinical skills and simulation centers. As program director for the Science and Technology Entry Program and director of the AMSNY/SMBS Post-Baccalaureate Program, he plays a central role in improving workforce numbers and the pipeline to medicine for underrepresented students in New York State.

An important goal of his work is to teach students to become compassionate physicians who care for patients holistically and in the context of their families, their cultures and their communities.

Milling has served as an at-large member of the executive board of National Board of Medical Examiners, which sets standards for excellence in medicine through its administration of the USMLE exams required for all medical students. He is also a primary care physician and sees patients through UBMD Internal Medicine.
