Physician assistant alumni celebrate among the red rocksPosted: March 15, 2013
Physician assistant alumni gathered March 8 during the Arizona State Association of Physician Assistants (ASAPA) Primary Care Conference in Sedona, Ariz., to reconnect with one another and receive updates from A.T. Still University’s Arizona School of Health Sciences (ATSU-ASHS) leadership.
Randy Danielsen, PhD, PA-C, DFAAPA, dean, ATSU-ASHS, and Bert Simon, DHSc, PA-C, chair of physician assistant studies, provided the following updates:
- ATSU-ASHS has seen tremendous growth – what started out as a school with four programs and 60 students has evolved into a nationally recognized school with 1,300 students and 11 programs in less than two decades.
- Dr. Simon, who stepped into the role of chair, physician assistant studies in 2012, continues to focus on making ATSU a pre-eminent center of learning that promotes whole person healthcare and serving the underserved.
- The physician assistant 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
- White coat ceremonies continue to be an important and meaningful rite of passage for students starting a new academic journey. For more information or to sponsor a student’s white coat, click here.
- The next physician assistant alumni reception will be held on May 29 in Washington, DC. More details to come!
