Drew Ambler, DO, FACOI, earned his Bachelor of Science degree in Biology from Ursinus College and his Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine degree from Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine. Following his residency in Internal Medicine at Genesys Regional Medical Center, Dr. Ambler completed a fellowship in Infectious Disease at Botsford General Hospital in Michigan. From there, Dr. Ambler went on to work in various private practices including Colorado Infectious Disease Associates and has set up numerous Antibiotic Stewardship Programs for a wide array of facilities ranging from academic centers to small rural hospitals. His desire to give back to the osteopathic profession brought him to RVUCOM and he’s been with us ever since.

In his spare time, Dr. Ambler enjoys experimenting in the kitchen and increasing his collections of music and watches. He is an avid Philly sports fan and enjoys spending time with his wife and two boys.
