Dr. Kubwimana Moses Mhayamaguru is an EMS Medical Directions Fellow at the University of Arizona, where he is also a clinical instructor in the Department of Emergency Medicine. He completed the Emergency Medicine residency at the University of Arizona, then decided to continue his career as an EMS physician.

When he first arrived in the United States, he worked as an emergency department nurse in Florida for ten years. During his tenure as a nurse, he went back to school and acquired a paramedic license. These opportunities to diversify his experience have helped him develop into a well-rounded physician.

After graduating from medical school at Manila Central University in 2001, Dr. Mhayamaguru did a medical post-graduate internship/transitional year at the Manila Adventist Medical Center.
