Program Goal 4

Prepare students for leadership positons in the PA Profession

Emory PA students learn hands-on leadership skills with opportunities such as the executive leadership team consisting of the class president, vice president, secretary and treasurer. Students lead community outreach and class service committees. Each committee has an assigned faculty member to provide support and guide student leaders in their responsibilities.

Leadership in healthcare is part of the curriculum in Becoming a PA 3 and 4 (PAE 7102 and PAE 7103), covering topics such as health care finance, billing and coding, health systems, health care technology, and work leadership.

Graduates apply their acquired leadership skills and serve as faculty members and program directors. They serve on the board of directors of various PA state and national organizations. Emory PA Program graduates have taken on clinical leadership positions as clinical post-graduate residency directors and as various division leads and Advanced Practice Provider hospital leads.

Approximately 80% of our students consistently report “confidence in filling leadership positions” in their exit surveys.
