Blue Cross NC announced continued investment in the two-year Physician Assistant Studies program, led by Paul Chelminski and housed in the Department of Allied Health Sciences.
Designed in collaboration with Army officials at Fort Bragg, the program builds on former troops’ medical experience to become skilled medical practitioners. The program is committed to the health care and workforce needs of all North Carolinians, including those living in rural areas.
Dr. Paul Roman Chelminski, professor of medicine and director of the physician assistant program, said he is fortunate to work with philanthropic partners who understand that the most important ingredient in providing high-quality and compassionate health care is to recruit, support and train students capable of delivering excellence and service to the people of North Carolina. The investment will allow the physician assistant program to support both student and faculty scholarship initiatives.
