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.
