Faculty

Advisor

Molly Paulson PA-C

 I earned my first college degree from the University of Wisconsin, Superior in medical technology. After graduating from UWS, I worked as a medical technologist in both hospital and out-patient clinical settings for 22 years.

                In 1995, I applied to, and was accepted into WMU’s PA program.  I graduated in 1998 with a BS in medicine. Since then I have worked continuously as a PA, first in the ED/urgent care, then in occupational medicine, and, for most of my PA career, in outpatient family practice where I precepted PA students. As a preceptor, I discovered that I really enjoyed teaching others how to do what I love (practice medicine). I went back to school, earned my Master’s degree (Univ. of Nebraska), and started teaching at GVSU in 2011 where I teach Clinical Applications (the “art” of medicine). In addition to teaching and working clinically one day a week at Oasis of Hope, I went back to school a fourth time and completed my doctorate of Health Sciences from A. T. Still University in 2016.

                One of the privileges of being the Pre-PA advisor is sharing my love of the PA profession with you. I look forward to getting to know you better during the next couple of semesters and help you achieve your dream of becoming a PA.
