Dr. Caruana received his bachelor's degree from Yale University, his M.D. from Tufts University and did his residency training at Wake Forest University.
Dr. Caruana was inspired to become a doctor by his hometown physician Joseph Graceffo, who came to the United States from Italy and made house calls to treat entire families for the flu, pneumonia and allergies.
"He had the medical skills and the personal touch that made him an exceptional physician," said Dr. Caruana.
Before coming to the UCF College of Medicine, Dr. Caruana served as senior vice president for medical affairs and chief medical officer at the Medical College of Georgia's medical center, MCG Health Inc. The center is licensed for 632 beds, has over $1 billion in annual gross revenues and includes numerous tertiary care units including a Level 1 trauma center. The Augusta, GA-based medical center also works in partnership with the community's two VA hospitals and the Eisenhower Army Medical Center.

He has served in leadership positions with the National Kidney Foundation and the Southeastern Kidney Council.
A Word From Dr. Caruana In his clinical practice, Dr. Caruana believes teamwork and trust between patient and physician is key. The two must work together to reach shared health goals, and that means physicians must support, not judge. "At Pegasus Health, we want physicians who will take the time to know the person, not just the disease, and who will work with the patient to render the right care at the right time," he said.
