Hear from Our Students


Valerie Hoermann

DMS '20

"I enrolled in the Medical Education Cognate because it was the perfect fit for my future in medicine. The Education Cognate provides an additional competitive edge and provides more flexibility career-wise."


Elizma Mercier

DMS '20

" ...this program has taught me to step out of my comfort zone and increase my knowledge/review of more complicated cases... which helped me diagnose [a young child] with post-streptococcal Glomerulonephritis this past Friday!!! Even my supervising Physician was impressed and once again I am so thankful and grateful to be a student of medicine at a higher level!"


Maria Siddiqi

DMS '19

"I would recommend this program to any physician assistant. I have gained so many benefits from completing this program. I am a more well-rounded clinician. The areas I was weak in I am stronger in now, and I am providing better, all-round care for my patients."


Jill Patruno

DMS '19

"…this week's case brought in topics from our GI module and applying this knowledge to work through differentials, diagnosis, and treatment in the full scope of caring for an acutely ill patient. It is a confidence builder to realize I understand what to do, even in a field and setting I have not worked in."


Jennifer Hawkins

DMS '19

" One of the main reasons that I wanted to pursue this degree and this particular course plan was so I could become a better clinician and be able to provide better care to my patient population." "I have realized [after one module], it will in fact make me a better clinician."


Evan Leonard

DMS '19

"The DMS program accomplishes the goal of expanding the physician assistant's (PA's) medical knowledge but its crowning achievement is creating leaders for the industry. Whether it be educational leadership, program development, or curricula design, ...the medical education track (cognate) is a superb choice to create and develop this knowledge. This cognate expands the intellect, profoundly develops research and critical thinking, as well as acts as a genesis for new skills for the workforce and is destined for physician assistant leaders."


Kara S McGee

DMS '19

"Participating in the medical education track of the Lincoln Memorial University DMS program was transformative for me as an educator. I had been a classroom and clinical educator for many years, having had no formal pedagogical training. Gaining knowledge about teaching and learning methods has helped me become a student-centered educator. I am without a doubt a more competent and confident educator."


Sonia Rupani

DMS '19

" The Zoom sessions are very informative, and the information disseminated in Zoom is precious and applicable to the daily clinical practice."


Tigist Opheim

DMS '19

" The program is unique and requires hard work, dedication, and enthusiasm. It is not easy, but it is worth all the hard work you put in to give optimal care to your patients."


Zabiullah Nessary

Brenda Johnson
