He worked as a research technician from 1976-1978 in the Department of Pharmacology at the same medical school running an over the counter drug efficacy trial and performing bench research on drug transport across cell membranes by UV-VIS Spectrophotometry. From 1978 to 1981 he attended Florida Atlantic University and earned his BA degree in Biology followed by earning his Doctor of Medicine ( M.D. ) degree from the University of Miami in 1985.
Subsequent to medical school he trained in Clinical Pathology ( Laboratory Medicine ) for two years at the University of Alabama, Birmingham, and was in charge of the emergency toxicology testing for ethanol by serum enzyme assay testing, and other intoxicating substances when on call duty.
