DO, FAAP, FACOP, FASA

Dr. Mychaskiw, is a board-certified, practicing pediatric cardiac anesthesiologist. He graduated medical school at the Kansas City College of Osteopathic Medicine and anesthesiology residency and fellowships at the Yale University School of Medicine, Yale-New Haven Hospital. Dr. Mychaskiw has an extensive background in health policy and medical education and is a graduate of the AOA’s Health Policy Fellowship.

An authority in osteopathic medical education, Dr. Mychaskiw has authored over 100 articles and book chapters, including works on hospital, medical school and operating room management. He has given hundreds of lectures around the world and is an authority on medical and educational administration in the U.S. and developing world. Dr. Mychaskiw joined Salud Education to continue development of medical colleges to meet the health care needs of the country’s underserved and vulnerable populations.

As the visionary behind an osteopathic medical school being established in southern New Mexico to address the shortage of physicians in the Southwestern U.S. and Northern Mexico and diversify the physician workforce, Dr. Mychaskiw initiated a compilation of influential leaders to make this vision a reality. In 2013, the Burrell College of Osteopathic Medicine (BCOM) at New Mexico State University was established with Founding Dean & Chief Academic Officer Mychaskiw at the helm of the academic arm of the medical school. The public/private partnership between New Mexico State University and BCOM was an integral factor in receiving the approval of the American Osteopathic Association’s Commission on Osteopathic College Accreditation to admit BCOM’s first class. Upon opening its doors in 2016 with 162 students and every year since then, BCOM has been acknowledged as the most diverse osteopathic medical school in the United States. In 2018, before joining Salud, Dr. Mychaskiw stepped into the role of Vice President of Development & External Relations to continue his acumen at developing new opportunities for BCOM. 

 

In addition to BCOM, Dr. Mychaskiw has been instrumental in the development of three additional colleges of medicine: (i) the public/private partnership between the Idaho College of Osteopathic Medicine at Idaho State University, (ii) the California Health Sciences College of Osteopathic Medicine near Fresno, and (iii) the additional location of the New York Institute of Technology College of Osteopathic Medicine at Arkansas State University, Jonesboro.

Prior to his roles with osteopathic medical schools, Dr. Mychaskiw was the Founding Chair of Anesthesiology and Anesthesia Medical Director of Perioperative Services at the new Nemours Children’s Hospital, in Orlando, Florida; a Professor and Chair of the Department of Anesthesiology and Perioperative Medicine at Drexel University; and Vice Chair of Anesthesiology at the University of Mississippi School of Medicine, where he led the opening of a new pediatric operating facility and development of a pediatric cardiac surgery program.
