On December 10, 2016, twenty-three students completed commencement exercises to receive a Master of Science in Physician Assistant Studies.
During the ceremony, Brady Griffith ’16 spoke on behalf of his fellow classmates as the class representative.
Dr. Keith Wenda, OB/GYN and long-standing preceptor for the program, delivered the commencement address. The start of his gradual retirement in 2017 will be truly bittersweet for the Augsburg PA Program, as Dr. Wenda has mentored over 180 PA students since 1995.
Carissa Carlson, PA-C received the Clinical Instructor of the Year Award, as voted upon by the graduates. Carissa is also an Auggie alumna, graduating from the PA Program in 2009.
The faculty and staff of the program congratulate these twenty-three men and women on their achievements. We wish them well as they prepare to sit for the national certifying exam in the upcoming weeks and months.
The class of 2016 is the twentieth class to graduate from Augsburg’s PA Program since its founding in 1995.
