The Faculty, Staff and Students of the UAMS Physician Assistant Program are caring people who are driven to provide patient-centered, quality, medical care. Much like the physician's Hippocratic Oath, each year at the White Coat Ceremony our new PA Students take the Physician Assistant Oath to make a public commitment to our duties, and to maintining high standards of professionalism.
Please join us in taking a closer look as we applaud two of our special stars:
Drew Siebenmorgen, (alumni, graduating class of 2015) and Matt Miskin have a lot in common. They have been friends since 2nd grade. They both coach boys basketball. They have another thing in common - Drew recently donated a kidney to his friend of 20 years. Look here to see wbir.com coverage of the story.
Dr. Gloria Richard-Davis wears many hats. She serves as the UAMS PA Program Medical Director. She is the Division Director, Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility, of the UAMS Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology. She is also devoted to her family. The Arkansas Democrat Gazette recently highlighted how she and her husband (also a dedicated physician) work hard at giving so much to others and to their family.
The Physician Assistant Oath:
I pledge to perform the following duties with honesty and dedication:
These duties are pledged with sincerity and upon my honor.
