PAEA honors Muma as first PA university president

The Physician Assistant Education Association (PAEA) honored Dr. Richard Muma with an article recognizing him as the first physician assistant (PA) to be named president of a university. The PAEA is the only national organization representing PA educational programs and works to provide quality education by developing and distributing educational services and products designed for meeting the needs of PA programs, the PA profession and the health care industry.

According to the article, Muma sees his background as a PA and PA educator as a significant contributor to his success in higher education, and obvious parallels between health care and higher education.
