Physician Assistant Creative Arts Collection

As Physician Assistants, our lives are touched by everyday experiences great and small. Our relationships with patients, knowledge of disease, success of treatment, and the impact of loss can affect our personal and clinical lives forever.

The Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine & Science Physician Assistant Creative Arts Collection aims to encourage and inspire the tradition of art, science and human experience for our PA student professionals. As a school community, we believe that informed, ethical, self-reflective patient care is the core of our profession, and is best nourished through the expressive arts, as well as through compassionate best practice of medicine.
