Pic of the week
Our PAS program is celebrating PA Week with colleagues from across the state at the 2022 Michigan Academy of Physician Assistants Fall CME Conference in Grand Rapids on Oct. 6-8. Participating students wrote, performed, directed and produced this two-minute video ahead of competing in tonight's annual Quiz Bowl. The short film is out of this world — drop everything and see for yourself! Then be sure to flip through all the fun behind-the-scenes pics on Instagram! Best of luck to our Little Einsteins as they match wits against fellow PA students, as well as to Program Director Mary Jo Pilat and Assistant Clinical Professor Bindiya Nandwana, who are presenting lectures during the conference. And happy PA Week to you all!
