Emily Murphy, an assistant professor and clinical coordinator in the University of Pittsburgh Physician Assistant Studies Program won the Pennsylvania Society of Physician Assistants’s Physician Assistant Educator of the Year Award.

It’s the second year in a row that a Pitt physician assistant faculty member has received this honor — David Beck, an assistant professor in the program, receiving the award last year.

The PA program is part of Pitt’s School of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences. It is committed to the development of highly qualified physician assistants who will serve as tomorrow’s leaders in the delivery of health care, patient education and professional service.
