Erin J. Hoffman MPAS, PA-C, was appointed to serve for two years as the American Academy of Physician Assistant’s medical liaison to the American Academy of Pediatrics. The ultimate goal of the medical liaisons is to elevate the PA profession and the strategic relationships of AAPA with national physician and medical organizations and to improve the PA practice environment and patient-centered care.
Jill Jensen, MPAS, PA-C, just joined our physician assistant faculty. She’s a 2004 graduate of the UNMC PA program. Here’s a little more about Jill in her own words:
“Since graduation I have worked in Atlantic, IA at a rural health clinic doing Primary Care and Emergency Medicine, for nearly six years. I then moved to Grinnell, IA, where I worked in Occupational Medicine, Employee Health, and Wound Care. I am excited to be back at the UNMC PA program helping to educate future PAs!
I am originally from central Iowa (a Cyclone fan!), and I now reside in Neola, IA just outside of Omaha/Council Bluffs. I really enjoy outdoor activities such as running, biking, fishing and boating. I also love spending time with my husband and two kids.”
A gutsy move to admit her Cyclone affiliation here in Big Red country, eh?! Welcome, Jill!
