Ayesha Ali has big aspirations for a career in health care. She’s working toward becoming a physician assistant (PA). Many PA schools require applicants to complete a certain number of direct patient-care hours to enroll in the program.
As Ayesha explored her options for completing these direct patient-care hours, she came across Lehigh Valley Physician Group (LVPG)'s Medical Assistant (MA) Trainee Program. The program covers the cost of tuition for students enrolled in a medical assistant program. Plus, medical assistant trainees have the opportunity to earn extra money by putting their new clerical and clinical skills to work in an LVPG physician practice while they’re still in school.
