Ryan Adler, M '11

Major: PA Studies
Job Title: Physician Assistant

I applied to 10 PA programs and visited several of the schools. It was evident from the interview process at Mount Union that I wasn’t going to be a number, but an individual in the program with the opportunity to have individualized attention if needed. The facilities were among the best that I had seen.

Physician Assistant Experiential Learning

Mount Union’s Physician Assistant Studies Program offers various educational opportunities for students outside of the classroom including:

  • Clinical Rotations allow students to put lessons learned in the classroom into practice, seeing firsthand cases only read about in textbooks, developing treatment plans and building professional relationships with patients and the healthcare team.
  • The AAPA National Conference provides students with the necessary resources to take their careers to the next level. With over 200 hours of continuing medical education (CME) sessions from which to choose, students can learn best practices from experts in the field, meet PAs and PA students from all over the nation, talk with researchers presenting posters of their studies, and participate in hands-on workshops.
  • The National Medical Challenge Bowl is a competition where teams of three PA students face-off by answering challenging medical questions on a variety of subjects including anatomy, emergency medicine, cardiology and physical diagnosis to name a few.

  • The Ohio Challenge Bowl is a competition where teams from all Ohio PA schools compete. Mount Union has won the competition three out of the past five years.
