I am excited to see Weber State University invest in the training and education of Physician Assistants. There is growing demand for advanced practice professionals in healthcare and Ogden Regional Medical Center is fully supportive of this program since we see a growing need to hire and utilize PAs in the hospital environment. Weber State always provides an outstanding educational experience for healthcare related programs and I expect and look forward to the same level of commitment and excellence from the PA degree program.
