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.


Mount Union’s Physician Assistant Studies Program is dedicated to the development of competent, compassionate healthcare providers who are able to work in conjunction with the supervising physician as an integral participant of the medical team. Mount Union’s established and extremely successful PA Program focuses not only on patient-centered care but the importance of ethics, integrity, responsibility and the importance of life-long learning for the PA.
