Lock Haven University’s Physician Assistant Program’s Coudersport branch campus held its first Physician Assistant (PA) Days

Lock Haven University’s Physician Assistant Program’s Coudersport branch campus held its first Physician Assistant (PA) Days ever at the end of the Class of 2015's third rotation. 

PA Days are held alternately at the end of each rotation at LHU's Main Campus as well as each of the branch campuses over a 2 - 5 day period where clinical year students complete testing pursuant to their clinical experiences, undergo practical evaluations and attend intensive review, professionally related and continuing medical education lectures. 

The event was coordinated and directed by the Coudersport Campus Coordinator, Professor Pam Ruane, and Administrative Assistant, Mrs. Deb Cline, and was held on September 18th and 19th at the Zito Technology Building on Main Street in Coudersport. 

Sixty-seven clinical students plus numerous members of the PA Program faculty, staff and guest speakers were in attendance while didactic students were simultaneously in class at the Coudersport Campus located within Cole Memorial Hospital. 

Distinguished guest speakers included Mr. Ed Pitchford, CEO of Cole Memorial Hospital, Dr. Wust-Smith also of Cole Memorial Hospital, and Chad Jackson, PA-C of Champion Orthopedics.

Regarding the event, Professor Ruane stated that, “This first time event was a great success in terms of introducing our students to our beautiful campus, the lovely town of Coudersport, and also in reinforcing our Program’s mission which is to encourage our students to practice in rural and medically underserved populations after they graduate. We’d like to thank the community and Cole Memorial Hospital for welcoming us with open arms and plan to return the favor by continuing to provide excellent, compassionate, and highly educated medical providers to the Northern Tier.”

So glad to see that this beautiful building is being put to good use!

Glad, too, except the Redevelopment Authority took it over and that means it is off the tax rolls at a time when we could really use those taxes. Too many tax exempt properties here. The apartment house west of town between the Gospel Tabernacle and the Millard house with the pond is also off the tax rolls and that is just wrong. We all pay more when they pay less or in this case none!
