Professor Barth joined the Augsburg PA program faculty in 2008 after several years in clinical practice as a paramedic and as a Physician Assistant. “I think that my prior clinical and life experiences have given me a unique perspective on the practice of medicine and therefore I am able to approach education with a very practical style.” As a PA in family practice, emergency medicine and surgery professor Barth has gained experience that is valuable in teaching students in our program.

“Having precepted clinical phase students from several programs in the past, I feel that Augsburg students are consistently well prepared to succeed. Now as part of the faculty I am honored to be part of the development of these fine clinicians.”
