Lake Erie College PA Program faculty to present at annual OAPA conference


The Lake Erie College Physician Assistant Program continues to distinguish itself, now with Director Sean Kramer and Assistant Clinical Coordinator Dale Turley set to present at the annual Ohio Association of Physician Assistants (OAPA) Conference Oct. 13-15 in Dublin, Ohio.

Kramer will present “Evaluation and Management of Congestive Heart Failure," and Turley will sit on a PA educator panel to conduct a question and answer session for students. Over 100 physician assistants from Ohio will join them in learning current best practices.

On Oct. 12, Kramer and Scott Danner ’19, OAPA student representative and PA Student Society treasurer, will attend the OAPA’s annual PA Program Dinner to discuss current issues in Ohio PA education.

Several weeks later, Oct. 23-28, faculty including Kramer and Assistant Professors Jennifer Sample, Carolyn Knox, Angela Parente and Steven Hunter will attend the annual conference for the PA Education Association (PAEA). Along with hundreds of PA educators from across the nation, LEC’s instructors will obtain continuing medical education (CME) by attending workshops in student assessment, objective-structured clinical examinations and advanced PA education skills.

“This is the primary conference that will allow the PA program to continue to maintain high standards and evolve with the best practices,” said Kramer. “Personally, I think it’s wonderful how the faculty and students demonstrate leadership and advocate for the PA profession. They also help give Lake Erie College a strong national and regional presence.”

Students, faculty and alumni are currently fundraising to attend the annual AAPA conference taking place May 19-23, 2017 in New Orleans, La. As 3-time quarterfinalists, the program’s Student Academy National Medical Challenge Bowl team has set high expectations.
