  • PA Services hosted the inaugural AAPA-CCHS Clinical Leadership Conference here on main campus with 40 PA's attending from all over the country.
  • For the 2nd year, we’ve welcomed Mt. Union’s PA class to our campus for the first of a kind Cadaver lab for gross anatomy. The instruction was inter-twined with residents and medical students. An extremely valuable learning experience for all.
