At the university, Ziemowit Mazur serves as an Assistant Professor and Associate Program Director of the PA Program and has been involved in PA education for a decade. He earned his Master of Science degree in Education from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and his Master of Science in Physician Assistant Practice from RFUMS.  He is enrolled in the Doctor of Philosophy program in Interprofessional Healthcare Studies, expected to be completed by 2021.  Ziemowit is a family and internal medicine PA, and continues to see patients alongside students and faculty at the Interprofessional Community Clinic (ICC), a clinic for underserved and uninsured patients in Lake County, IL. 

Ziemowit instructs students throughout the PA curriculum, including teaching and coordination of the General Medicine course series as well as serving as the course director for Geriatrics, Interprofessional Case Collaborations, and Professional Issues and Ethics.  His teaching philosophy reflects a strong commitment to health prevention, public health, and professional advocacy.

He has authored several articles in peer-reviewed journals related to the best practices in PA education, and served as a co-author and reviewer for medical textbook chapters.  He has presented more than 20 peer-reviewed seminars and research posters at state, regional, national, and international conferences centered around best clinical and teaching practices.
