August 22, 2008
Cindy A. Lanterman has been named clinical coordinator for the Physician Assistant Studies Program at Mount Union College.
According to Sharon Luke, director of the PA program, “Cindy has a vibrant personality and is a very hard worker, which makes her perfect for this role. She has made some real advancements in finding sites for the first class of students, who will begin the clinical phase of the program in August 2010.”
As clinical coordinator, Lanterman will serve as a liaison to the medical providers in the community. She will oversee the clinical rotation placement of students during the clinical phase of the program and will be responsible for the recruitment, development and assessment of the clinical rotation sites.
“These clinical rotation experiences are very important for students to have an introduction to the standards of practice for various disciplines of medicine, including specialties like orthopedic surgery, endocrinology, pediatrics, psychiatry and emergency medicine,” said Luke.
Lanterman earned a bachelor of science degree in physician assistant from Gannon University in Erie, PA.
A physician assistant for nearly 20 years, Lanterman has worked both in private practices and hospital settings. Most recently, she served as trainer/project manager for Chartware, Inc. in Rohnert Park, CA.
