Ashland Biology graduates becoming Physican Assistants

We have seen a growing interest in physician assistant (PA) careers amongst students in our science departments.  Two of our graduates have recently completed PA programs and are now serving patients.  Charlie Davis (Biology '12) graduated at the top of his class from Mount Union University's PA program this past year, passed his State of Ohio board exams and is now practicing in Orthopedics, Family Medicine and Sports Medicine with Avita Health System.  Charlie notes that his undergraduate research experience helped to set him up for his career success.

Katie Manocchio (Biology '11) completed the PA program at the University of Toledo and is now practicing with Samaritan Regional Health System specializing in Emergency Medicine.  Katie worked in the emergency room at Ashland City's Samaritan Hospital while an undergraduate student.

Three other Ashland biology graduates are currently in PA programs at Baldwin Wallace University and Mount Union.  You can find out more about preparation for PA programs on our wiki advising pages.
