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.

PA Program Student Associations

Students interested in or involved with the Physician Assistant Studies Program have the opportunity to participate in the following organizations:

  • Pre-PA Club - composed of UMU students who have an interest in applying to PA school. Students discuss opportunities, trends and strategies for application and interview related to program entry.
  • Physician Assistant Studies Program Student Society - composed of students in the PA Studies Program.

Throughout the year, these associations host events for students and faculty members where students gain hands-on experience through BMI and blood pressure checks during the National PA Week in October.

In addition to these events, students participate in a number of community service projects including:

  • Sponsoring a Strong Strides for Kids 5K Walk/Run
  • Participating in Treasure Your Chest and Relay for Life
  • Volunteering at a hunger center
  • Organizing a coat drive
  • Collecting items for a domestic violence shelter
  • Hosting a donation drive to raise money for a single family during the holiday season
