The things I like most about UNE's Physician Assistant (PA) program are its module-based curriculum and the relationships you are able to make with the faculty. The smaller PA class size allows you to really get to know your classmates and the faculty and allows them to become more than just faculty but rather mentors.
Another thing that I like about the program is the reputation its students have at clinical rotations. Everywhere I have traveled for my rotations they have talked about how professional and well-prepared the UNE PA students are for their clinical work.
Beyond the Classroom
Becoming PA class president has been very important to my professional development because it has helped me become more active in our national organization, AAPA, providing me the resources to become a national leader in the PA profession. My rural clinical rotations have also been important to my professional development because they have taught me to be an economical and resourceful provider. Although moving frequently for rotations can be stressful it has been a great opportunity to make lots of connections, learn from a large number of providers, and learn multiple health systems.
