Kehinde: The physician assistant journey

Born in Nigeria, Kehinde Femi moved to the United States with his family at the age of 14. He attended UGA for undergrad and studied Exercise Sports Science. He came to Augusta University for the Physician Assistant (PA) Program and is currently in his first year.

He said that the PA program at Augusta University is great because they have a cadaver lab. This allows students to have direct, hands on training. “There is no better way to learn than experience”, Kehinde said.

When he is not in class or studying he volunteers for Christ Church. Some of his responsibilities while volunteering include screening patients and making sure everyone is healthy.

His long-term goal is to work in the Emergency Room. “This is where you can be there for people at their most vulnerable state,” Kehinde said.

One thing that Kehinde has enjoyed about the Physician Assistant Program is that the faculty and staff are there for you and quick to answer any questions you have. “They are there for moral support and they care about your well-being,” Kehinde said. Another added benefit of the program is that “all of my classmates and I work well together,” Kehinde said.

For fun, Kehinde loves watching and playing soccer. His favorite soccer team is Manchester United.
