Emory PA Alumni is the First PA in the United Arab Emirates

Aretha J. Roberson (Emory PA09) was recently hired by Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. On November 16, 2016, she completed Oral Boards administered by The Health Authority of Abu Dhabi (HAAD) becoming the first Physician Assistant in the nation. 

 She will be joining The Hospitalist Team and assisting with patient admissions, consults and daily management in the Acute Care Units. 

 "This is truly a momentous achievement not only for me personally, but for the PA profession. It is a blessing and an honor, to be an 'ambassador of sorts' to introduce a new medical speciality to the Emirati people."
