Dr. Italo

of planning,
assessment, and
competency
development for
WCUCOM, was
recently named to the editorial board
for The Journal of American Osteopathic
Association (JAOA). The JAOA is the
official scientific publication of the
American Osteopathic Association, as
well as the scholarly, peer-reviewed
publication of the osteopathic medical
profession.
“It is a great honor to be on this
board,” said Dr. Subbarao. “For many
years this journal has been the scholarly
authority for osteopathic medicine. I
am deeply gratified by the opportunity
to serve in this capacity, promoting the
growth of the profession.”
Dr. Subbarao graduated from
Philadelphia College of Osteopathic
Medicine before completing a
fellowship at John Hopkins University.
His fellowship training in emergency
medicine and disaster and humanitarian
assistance led him to serve as the
director of the Public Health Readiness
Office at the American Medical
Association (AMA) Center for Public
Health Preparedness and Disaster
Response, located in Chicago, Ill.
Dr. Subbarao, who came to the
WCUCOM in 2012, is no stranger to
scholarly writing. During the tenure
of his career with AMA, he served as
deputy editor for the AMA’s publication
Disaster Medicine and Public Health
Preparedness. He has also had over
60 articles published, edited several
journals and books, and continues to
stay deeply involved in scholarship and
research.
“I was offered the job at the
WCUCOM, and the associate dean
post was a great opportunity for me
and my family,” Dr. Subbarao said.
“Since I arrived at WCU, my focus has
been on providing the best quality of
education for our medical students
and promoting research in the field of
osteopathic medicine. As a member
of the journal’s editorial board, I look
forward to supporting the WCUCOM’s
efforts in promoting scholarly research
and expanding opportunities for growth
for this young school.”
