Penn College’s PA program: Small classes, big rewards

Join Program Director Joshua A. Bower for a virtual tour of Penn College’s physician assistant program. Take a look inside the assessment lab, where students learn to perform medical history evaluations, physical exams and clinical procedures. “In the assessment lab, students turn theory into hands-on practice,” says Bower, a 2012 graduate of the program. “So they will learn a concept in the classroom and then go right from the classroom into the lab, where they can apply that knowledge to a simulated case or a patient scenario.” Meet Geriatric Pete, a lifelike manikin, and see the cadaver lab where students work in small teams with actual human tissue to tackle dissections and perfect such procedures as shave biopsies.
