The American Health Council has warmly welcomed Dr. Jeffrey Wasser, MD., as “Best in Medicine.” Having worked in the healthcare sector for 44 years, Dr. Wasser has developed himself as an expert in the field of Hematology and Medical Oncology and continues to demonstrate a willingness to broaden his understanding and share his knowledge.
Dr. Wasser had always longed for a profession where he could be helpful to others in his day to day activities. It was this interest that inspired Dr. Wasser to study at Rutgers University completing a Bachelors in Biological Sciences, and at Weill Cornell Medicine for his Medical Degree. This lead Dr. Wasser to conduct clinical trials in immunotherapy whilst working as a medical doctor; this involved multiple clinical trials over the years including phase 1 and 2 trials in immunotherapy for a variety of malignancies, and clinical trials for thrombomimetics. Dr. Wasser is the author of guidelines for Immune Thrombocytopenic Purpura [ITP] in 1996.
Although in the industry for 44 years, Dr. Wasser has been working in his current role as Assistant Professor for 4 years and is currently retired from active practice at the University of Connecticut.
The University of Connecticut (UConn) is one of America’s top 20 public universities, according to U.S. News & World Report. It is home to more than 31,000 students, 1,300 faculty, 230,000 proud alumni, and a handsome husky named Jonathan. The University has fourteen schools and colleges: Agriculture and Natural Resources, Business, Dental Medicine, Education, Engineering, Fine Arts, Law, Liberal Arts and Sciences, Medicine, Nursing, Pharmacy, and Social Work. Students can choose from eight undergraduate bachelor’s degrees with 102 possible majors, as well as seventeen graduate/doctoral degrees and five professional degree programs.
Dr. Wasser is honoured to be a member of a number of professional associations including the American Society of Hematology, the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO), Phi Beta Kappa and Alpha Omega Alpha.
Dr. Wasser attributes his success to his wife and family who have supported him in all of his endeavors. Looking into the future his main goals include staying involved in medicine by teaching, consulting, and lecturing.
