Lunch & Learn session latest event for Thiel College’s new PA program director

GREENVILLE, Pa.—Thiel College’s new Program Director for the Master of Science in Physician Assistant Studies program Lynn Williams, M.D. is hosting prospective students and their families during Wednesday’s online Lunch & Learn session.

Thiel College has applied for the Accreditation Review Commission on Education for the Physician Assistant as a developing/applicant program seeking provisional accreditation status for its new Master of Science in Physician Assistant Studies. Thiel College anticipates matriculating its first class in July 2021, pending achieving Accreditation-Provisional status at the March 2021 ARC-PA meeting.

 “The  virtual Lunch and Learn sessions allow potential applicants to discover more about the program from the convenience of their home,” Williams said.  “I feel very lucky to be a part of the wonderful community and outstanding faculty at Thiel and hope that many prospective Physician Assistants will choose Thiel College for their training.”

Thiel College’s program is accepting highly-motivated high school seniors, who can apply for a spot in the accelerated five-year program. Students will earn a traditional four-year bachelor's degree and continue at Thiel for a fifth year to complete the master's degree program. Individuals who have already completed a bachelor’s degree and wish to attain a Master of Science in Physician Assistant Studies from Thiel College can apply for a seat in the 27-month post-baccalaureate program.

Before coming to Thiel, Williams was in dermatology practice in Lawrence County for 27 years. Williams earned her Bachelor of Arts degree from Northwestern University. She has a Master of Arts in public health from the University of Michigan and her M.D. and dermatology residency training from Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia.
