HIGH POINT, N.C., Aug. 4, 2014 – The Physician Assistant Studies program at High Point University recently hired Elyse Watkins as a clinical assistant professor.

“I am thrilled to join what will be one of the best PA programs in the country,” says Watkins.

Watkins received her Bachelor of Arts in anthropology from Virginia Commonwealth University, as well as her Bachelor of Science in physician assistant studies from the George Washington University.
