PAs Around the World: Reaching the Underserved in Ghana

PAs Around the World: Reaching the Underserved in Ghana

Host: Lisa Dandrea Lenell, PA-C, MPAS, MBA

Guest: Nadia Miniclier, PA-C

How does a country with only 2,500 practicing doctors provide medical care to 22 million people? That's the healthcare crisis facing the medical community and the people in Ghana. Host Lisa Dandrea Lenell looks at the healthcare landscape in this West African country, the issue of brain-drain, and the role of physician assistants — known there as "medical assistants" — in the country of Ghana, as compared to physician assistants in the US. Her guest is PA Nadia Miniclier, director of the Ghana Clinical Medicine Rotation at the PA program at the University of Utah.
