Dr. Perry Halushka received his PhD and MD degrees from the University of Chicago in 1970. He completed an internship and residency in internal medicine at Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta, Georgia, followed by a Postdoctoral Fellowship in Clinical Pharmacology at the National Institutes of Health.  In 1974, he joined the faculty of the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) as an Assistant Professor of Pharmacology and Medicine and ultimately became a Professor of Pharmacology and Medicine.  In 2000 he was named Dean of the College of Graduate Studies, a position he held for 13 years. He currently holds the titles of Distinguished University Professor and Dean Emeritus, College of Graduate Studies. 

He has published over 225 scientific papers and over 50 book chapters and invited scientific reviews.

He has served as a consultant to numerous major pharmaceutical companies and several startup companies.

For 30 years, Dr. Halushka directed the NIH funded Medical Scientist Training Program at MUSC. In that capacity, he has engendered an excitement for translational research (“bench-to-bedside”) and created for students a singular opportunity to obtain simultaneous MD/PhD degrees.

In addition, Dr. Halushka has given lectures in the past on perseverance that encourages and inspires students to continue to pursue their goals even when faced with setbacks and hardships. His message is relevant to all of us.
