Chapman Family Homecoming 2019 is coming up October 4-6 and Crean College of Health & Behavioral Sciences is pleased to be hosting two faculty master classes that are sure to excite our alumni and students!

Should I see a PA? Should I be a PA?

Oct 5, 2019 | 10:00 A.M. | Beckman Hall, Room 214

This faculty master class will be presented by Associate Clinical Professor of PA Studies, Anne Walsh, PA-C, MMSc, DFAAPA. Physician Assistant (PA) consistently ranks among the nation’s best health care careers (#1, US News and World Report, 2019). What is a PA, and how do they differ from medical assistants or physicians? What roles do PAs play in meeting the demand for healthcare in our region? What are the advantages for patients who receive care from a PA-Physician team?  What types of students are best suited for a PA career?  Did you know Chapman has a new PA program, located on the Rinker Health Science Campus in Irvine, CA.? Come learn more about it and the community partners with whom we work to provide outstanding training for students.
