Wm. John Gill PA-C Sponsored Scholarship
for the Physician Assistant Studies Program
In honor of long-time President, Mr. Wm. John Gill PA-C and his many accomplishments, The National Association of Rural Health Clinic has established the Wm. John Gill PA-C scholarship to benefit the UAB Physician Assistant Studies Program.
The UAB PA Program has many students who could benefit from this generous gift and who fit the criteria of practicing in a rural community or a rural health professional shortage area. The UAB Program, from which Mr. Gill graduated in 1974 now offers a dual Master’s degree in Physician Assistant Studies and Public Health (MSPAS/MPH). The dual degree program started with one student in 2016 and has grown to 6 students who were accepted into the 2018-2020 cohort. The program also educates students who are admitted outside of the dual degree program who plan on practicing in an underserved or rural area. We know this scholarship will benefit many students who are so deserving and look forward to the impact they will make in their own communities.
