Physician Assistant Students for Inclusion and Diversity

About PA-SID

Established September 2020, we are a group of physician assistant students who recognize the gaps in representation in the field of medicine. We desire to increase and sustain diversity within the PA profession at Eastern Virginia Medical School. As future PA leaders, we want to encourage and engage in practices that promote inclusion and diversity throughout various medical specialties.
