Doctoral Degree Researchers Announced

In April, the PAEA Board of Directors created a funded opportunity to incentivize and focus scholarship and new research related to the impact of doctoral entry-level degrees in health professions.

PAEA received many competitive applications for this funded opportunity. After a blind, peer-reviewed process, PAEA would like to congratulate the following individuals/teams who were selected for funding:

  • Shani Fleming, MSHS, MPH, PA-C, University of Maryland, Baltimore; Gerald Kayingo, PhD, PA-C, University of California–Davis; James F. Cawley, MPH, PA-C, University of Maryland, Baltimore; Violet A. Kulo, EdD, MS, University of Maryland, Baltimore; Karen L. Gordes, PhD, DSc, PT University of Maryland, Baltimore
  • Anthony Miller, MEd, PA-C, Shenandoah University; Bettie Coplan, MPAS, PA-C, Northern Arizona University
  • Claire O’Connell, MPH, PA-C, Rutgers University
  • Brenda Quincy, PhD, MPH, PA-C, Butler University; Jennifer Snyder, PhD, PA-C, Butler University; Darwin Brown, MPH, PA-C, Creighton University
  • Shannon Diallo, MMS, PA-C, Arcadia University; Diana Noller, DHSc, MMS, MSPT, PA-C, Arcadia University

This program was designed to support the research and scholarly work of faculty members to help inform the Board of Directors as they develop a policy recommendation to present to PAEA members for consideration.

Over the next few months, these faculty members will be conducting various outreach efforts to collect information to inform their research. We encourage you to participate in their data-gathering and support your colleagues as they investigate this important topic for our profession.

Congratulations again to all the recipients!
