PEMBROKE PINES, Fla.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–American University of the Caribbean School of Medicine (AUC) today
celebrated its commencement ceremony at the Watsco Center in Coral
Gables, Florida, and recognized nearly 400 graduates, who join AUC
alumni practicing medicine in all 50 U.S. states and globally.


Shlee Song, M.D., was the keynote speaker. Dr. Song is a 2003 AUC
graduate and, as the Director of Cedars-Sinai Medical Center’s Stroke
Center in Los Angeles, California, oversees one of the busiest stroke
centers in the country.

“AUC has a strong tradition of inviting our alumni to speak at
commencement to encourage and inspire our newest graduates, and show
them just how far their degree can take them. We’re honored to have Dr.
Song be a part of that tradition today,” said Heidi Chumley, M.D.,
executive dean of AUC. “Dr. Song is a true leader in the neurology
field. Her development of a telemedicine program for stroke patients is
increasing access to crucial services, and, as an educator, she helps
train the next generation of neurologists.”

Dr. Song has been with Cedars-Sinai for the past seven years and has
worked on numerous steering committees. She also serves as the principal
investigator on multiple national and international clinical trials, the
most recent of which was published in the Annals of Neurology
using a protocol she helped develop.

As the previous program director for the vascular neurology fellowship
program at Cedars-Sinai, she has trained many stroke neurologists who
practice in the southern California. Additionally, she continues her
educational role as the associate director of the residency program in
the department of neurology.

“American University of the Caribbean School of Medicine was pivotal in
my medical career and the path I ultimately chose to follow,” said Dr.
Song. “I’m proud to join AUC as the keynote speaker for this year’s
commencement.”

After graduating from AUC, Dr. Song completed her neurology residency at
George Washington University Hospital in Washington, D.C., before
conducting a clinical fellowship and stroke research at the National
Institute of Health in Maryland, which is the nation’s medical research
agency, and one of the world’s foremost medical research centers.
