About 40 Sacred Heart University students studying education, social work, speech-language pathology and physical and occupational therapy recently got a look at how their disciplines intertwine in school environments, thanks to a grant from the College of Health Professions. The graduate students participated in a three-hour program that aimed to help them better understand each other’s roles and how they overlap to help the children they one day will assist to have more meaningful, rewarding and successful school experiences.
In December, Sacred Heart University realized a goal that was five years in the making when the students in its first physician assistant (PA) program graduated. Twenty-six students received their degrees after completing an intense, 27-month program comprising 12 months of classroom work, followed by a 15-month clinical phase, fulfilling 2,000 hours of experience in medical specialties. They worked tirelessly at a renovated, state-of-the-art facility, the Tandet Center, adjacent to Stamford Hospital, where they learned and excelled. All students completed clinical rotations at Stamford Hospital and other SHU-affiliated health-care sites.
