Physician Assistant Program: Learning on the job

This fall students in the Physician Assistant program have had the opportunity to earn money in a diagnostic and evaluation program that involves a longtime affiliate faculty member.

Physician Assistant Bob Ross has helped with the clinical education of many UDM students in the past. Now students are working with him in conducting peripheral vascular evaluations at Triad Diagnostic Technologies in White Lake.

In addition to making money, the students are learning about a growing health concern for the diabetic and elderly populations. The program offers students in-depth experience with clinical evaluation that will help later in their careers.

“He has had many of our students on clinical rotation, and this is an outgrowth of that ongoing relationship,” says Associate Professor Suzanne York, chair of the Physician Assistant program.
