Anthony J. Busti, MD, PharmD, MSc, FNLA, FAHA

Founder & Chief Executive Officer

Dr. Busti is passionate about training healthcare providers not just to know the right answers to clinically relevant questions, but to truly grasp the rationales leading to those answers. 

He created High-Yield Med Reviews with that vision in mind, believing if we can integrate medical knowledge across disciplines and increase true understanding instead of memorization, we can have a positive impact on healthcare as a whole.

Upon obtaining his PharmD, he completed a post-doctoral pharmacy residency at the University of Texas at Austin and Scott & White Hospital. He then taught clinical pharmacology and did clinical research as an Associate Professor at Texas Tech Univ Health Sciences Center in Dallas, Texas, where he also taught in the NIH Clinical Scholars program at UT Southwestern.

During this time, he also served as Chairman to the State of Texas Drug Utilization Review Board, a Governor-appointed member to the State of Texas P&T Committee, taught clinical pharmacology at both Baylor University and Texas Woman's University, and founded High-Yield Med Reviews.

He then obtained his MD at Texas A&M College of Medicine, completed a 4-year Emergency Medicine Residency Program at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, and a Masters of Science (MSc) in Evidenced-Based Health Care from Oxford University.
