Being a PA means bringing sensitivity, effectively communicating, and reassuring patients in addition to just diagnosing and treating them. As a PA, I would have lateral mobility in different specialties respectively. I chose the Ithaca College PA program because I love that they want to bring back to the community which I live in and I know that I can be part of the change locally. The faculty have shown that they have worked hard to make this program like no other. As a PA student and future PA I am looking forward to use the skills and education I have obtained along the way to help others. I would love to give back to underserved communities in the future.
