WAUKESHA, WIS.— Christina Robohm, director and clinical professor of the Master of Science in Physician Assistant Studies program at Carroll University, was appointed to the Central Application Service for Physician Assistants Admission Committee (CASPA) of the Physician Assistant Education Association (PAEA).
Robohm will serve on the CASPA Admission Committee for a two-year term that is renewable for one term. The committee oversees the centralized admission system and advises on admission best practices. Robohm has served in national leadership positions with PAEA since entering physician assistant education 12 years ago. She is currently finishing her last term on the Governance Committee.
Before coming to teach at Carroll University in September 2012, Robohm was the associate professor of Pediatrics and associate director of Admission and Student Life at the University of Colorado Child Health Associate/Physician Assistant Program.
“Being a part of the Physician Assistant Program at Carroll is a very exciting opportunity,” Robohm said. “This program is unique in its emphasis on cultural competency, primary care and care of the underserved.” Carroll’s program integrates a comprehensive cultural competency curriculum, supported by a five-year grant from the Health Resources and Services Administration of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
Robohm earned the Chancellor’s Diversity Recognition Award for faculty leadership from the University of Colorado Denver in 2008, in recognition of her work in implementing admission and recruitment policies that successfully increased the diversity of students within the University of Colorado CHA/PA Program. Robohm has a bachelor’s degree in medical science and a master’s degree in child health and physician assistant studies from the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center.
