The physician assistant Class of 2020 celebrated its transition from classroom study to clinical rotations during the program’s annual White Coat Ceremony on Saturday. After being accepted into the professional phase of the program, students spent a full year – the Fall 2018, Spring 2019 and Summer 2019 semesters – in classroom study. Following final exams and service at the Little League Baseball World Series, the students will spend the next year working directly with patients in a variety of fieldwork settings, under the supervision of clinical preceptors. Heather S. Dorman, instructor of physician assistant, was selected as faculty speaker. Brian M. McKeon Sr., assistant professor of biology, served as master of ceremonies. Students Timothy A. Bradley, of Williamsport, and Nicholas A. Kilpatrick, of Muncy, served as student speakers. Allyson M. Rothrock, of Williamsport, led the class in reciting the Physician Assistant Oath.
