With an eye on the future, The Duke Physician Assistant Program (DPAP) recently held a faculty and staff event titled, “DPAP 2027: Disruptive Innovation for the Future of PA Education.”
In her opening remarks, Program Director Jacqueline Barnett, DHSc, MSHS, PA-C, said:
Duke PA Students, Faculty, attend The Poor People’s and Low-Wage Workers’ Assembly and Moral March in Washington, DC
The Duke Physician Assistant (PA) Program was well represented at the American Academy of Physician Assistants’ (AAPA) 2022 conference, the first in-person conference since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Last month students and faculty from the Duke Physician Assistant Program traveled to two local high schools as part of the Physician Assistant Education Association’s (PAEA) Project Access initiative.
Project Access is a national program designed to “make aware and encourage students from underrepresented in medicine groups to consider the PA profession as a health career.”
For 20 years, students from the Duke Physician Assistant Program have visited Burton Elementary School in Durham for an annual health education presentation.
Embrace Your Journey
Physician Assistant (PA) school is a journey filled with countless moments of joy, expansion of knowledge, perseverance, growth, exhaustion, reflection, and the occasional unexpected trial. It will also push you to heights you never thought possible.
I was sitting at my desk at Duke University Hospital when I received probably the most awaited email of my life – Offer of Admission, Duke Physician Assistant (PA) Program. The outpatient abdominal transplant team surrounded me, the people who had inspired me to learn, grow, and take this giant leap.
