- Dr. Simon, who stepped into the role of chair of the physician assistant studies in 2012, is playing an integral role in the ATSU-ASHS visioning process as the school’s 20th anniversary approaches.
- The PA department can always use more preceptors to ensure students receive quality clinical experiences. If you are interested in becoming a preceptor, please contact Laura Witte, PhD, PA-C, associate program director, at email@example.com.
