Two graduate students enrolled in the Misericordia University Physician Assistant Studies program have been elected to the Student Academy of the American Academy of Physician Assistants House of Delegates.
Alicia Dill ’14 of Bemus Point, N.Y., and Jenny Rizel ’14 of Kingston, Pa., have been selected to be members of the 51-member Student Academy, which represents about 18,000 physician assistant students in the country. Dill and Rizel are members of the first graduate student class to enroll in the Misericordia University five-year combined Bachelor of Science in Medical Science and Master of Science in Physician Assistant Studies program.
“It’s an exciting leadership opportunity for these students and also gives them an opportunity to run for higher office,’’ said Scott L. Massey, Ph.D., P.A.-C., the founding department chair, program director and professor of the Misericordia University Physician Assistant Program. “We are very proud that two of our students were elected. Jenny and Alicia will be voting on important issues that impact the profession for both students and practicing physician assistants at the spring conference.’’
