The academic and clinical years of physician assistant education always prove to be challenging, demanding, and hectic; yet somehow physician assistant students manage to find the time, energy, and material resources to provide service to their neighbors, their community. The first year physician assistant students (Class of 2006) at De Sales University as well as the Class of 2005 at Gannon University once again proved that caring, compassionate hearts can and do find the time to help their neighbors.

PSPA Hosts NE Regional Student Track and Challenge Bowl
The PSPA was proud to host the Northeast Regional Student Track and Challenge Bowl for the Student Academy of the American Academy of Physician Assistants (SAAAPA) at the PSPA’s 28th Annual CME Conference in Philadelphia. This was the first year that a constituent chapter hosted this event since the PSPA and other constituent chapters in the Northeast Region decided not to hold an annual regional meeting for graduates. Since that decision was made 2 years ago, this event has been hosted by Quinnipiac University’s PA Program and Duquesne University’s PA Program. This was also the first year that the event was held in the Fall instead of the Spring as it had been in past years.
