Ties to the Physician Assistant Program continue long after graduation. We believe that the future of the PA Program resides in our having a strong association with our alumni. Your participation in the program’s alumni association is one way of ensuring the reputation and legacy of the program. In collaboration with the Baylor Office of Alumni Affairs, we are committed to promoting goodwill through the offering of programs and services for our graduates and current students. This page is your portal to those services.
With assistance from the Office of Alumni Affairs, the PA Program has formed a chapter within the larger alumni association of Baylor College of Medicine. There is no cost to be involved in the PA Alumni Chapter. As a graduate, you are a member and we hope you will participate in the activities of the alumni group.
Our member-at-large representative on the board of the Baylor Alumni Association is Dwight Deter, PA-C (BCM 76) who practices in El Paso, Texas.
An important next step involves the identification of alumni willing to serve as the representatives for specific class years. These individuals would work with us to think about activities of importance to alumni and the continued prosperity of the PA Program. The specific graduation class groups are: 1973-78; 1979-83; 1948-88; 1989-93; 1994-98; and 1999 to 2006. If you would like to serve as an alumni group representative please contact us by phone or email.
Staying in Touch
Please keep your address and contact information up-to-date so we can send you program information, alumni updates, alumni reception dates and locations, and other news. Current contact information will likewise make it possible for the Baylor Alumni Affairs to provide you with electronic newsletters and information about Baylor activities. You can do this online by completing the graduate survey.
One aspect of program accreditation requires us to regularly survey our graduates for contact and employment information. Please check your contact information on an annual basis and notify us of any address changes. You are also encouraged to complete the Graduate Survey once each year.
