Dr. Wiltz received his medical education at Tulane University School of Medicine and became a board-certified internist.

“You are entering a profession that serves and cares for individuals and communities, in the best of times and in the worst of times. We celebrate your graduation from ATSU today, as you exemplify all that we believe in, whole person health care, commitment to the underserved, educational excellence, and community,” Dr. Burch said. “Each choice you make as a health professional not only shapes someone else’s life, but contributes to the person you are and want to become.”
