PA Studies is delighted to welcome Sherrie B. Spear, MHS, PA-C, who joins us this month as associate program director and distant campus coordinator for the Boone campus. She comes to Wake Forest from the Duke University PA program, where she most recently was associate program director and chair of Duke’s admissions committee. Spear graduated from Louisiana State University with a B.S. and certification as a medical technologist. She worked in hospital stat labs and as a clinical microbiologist for several years before attending the Duke PA program, graduating in 1995. As a PA, she worked at Duke’s inpatient cardiology service and then in the cardiac catheterization lab where she performed catheterizations and assisted with angioplasty. Spear served as a clinical preceptor during her the 10 years on the cardiology service. Next she completed a year-long teaching fellowship at the Duke PA program and then joined the faculty as an academic coordinator. At Duke, she was also the director of preclinical education for several years. Spear is interested in curriculum development and has served on the education subcommittee for the Physician Assistant Education Association; she is currently a member of PAEA’s Recruitment and Admissions Council.  She continued to work clinically in cardiology during her time on the Duke faculty and has taught courses in cardiology, diagnostic methods, and emergency medicine.
