PA Proud! KONA UW Medicine MEDEX Program
Today, Joel Hamaguchi and I had the incredible opportunity to meet with the leaders and first PA class of the new UW Kailua-Kona PA program (MEDEX NORTHWEST). The students are highly motivated and are eager to join our profession and represent the communities they grew up in within our islands.
Today is a day to celebrate and remind one another how fortunate we are-- to be a part of such a great profession.
Today, I personally, will use this as a reminder to take time to educate a few extra patients about our profession and reengage my docs and office manager about the importance of taking PA students throughout the year.
I hope that all of you have the opportunity to do the same.
