“Hi, my name is Simon. For the past 2 years, I have been working as a Clinic Assistant in the Hematology & Oncology Clinic at Children’s. Prior to this, I went to school at the University of Minnesota to pursue a degree in Biology, Society, and the Environment. While working on my degree, I was lucky enough to have the time to volunteer at Children’s.
The positive interactions I had with patients and staff as a volunteer, combined with my interest in the healthcare field, led me to pursue a career as a Physician Assistant. I recently found out that I was accepted to a PA program and will be starting my new journey in the next couple of months. I am excited at the prospect of becoming a PA and, because of my experiences at Children’s, know that I want to work in the pediatric field once I am done with my education.”
Thank you, Simon, for all that you’ve done for Children’s–as a volunteer AND an employee! We wish you the best in PA school this fall!
