January 06, 2022

Assistant Professor of Internal Medicine Jonathan Weber, MA, PA-C, has been recognized as a Distinguished Fellow of the American Academy of PAs (AAPA). Weber, a 1998 graduate of the Yale School of Medicine (YSM) Physician Associate (PA) Program, is associate director of didactic education for the PA Program.

The AAPA established the Distinguished Fellow program in 2007, and the distinction is earned by less than two percent of the entire AAPA membership. Weber earned this recognition due to his outstanding contributions to patient care, dedication to PA education, and professional leadership on national, regional, state, and local levels during the past 23 years.

Weber has practiced internal medicine in the Yale New Haven Health (YNHH) and Yale University health systems for over 23 years, first as a hospitalist and then in primary care and urgent care at Yale Health. He currently practices at the Yale Medicine Diabetes Center.

His chief areas of clinical expertise and scholarly pursuit include chronic disease management of medically complex patients with diabetes, psychosocial communication, behavioral health, preventive and lifestyle medicine, medical bioethics, and health equity. He has been an active faculty contributor in CME curriculum development with the Endocrine Society and AAPA. He is a frequent speaker, including at national, regional, and state conferences.

Weber is committed to professional service and advocacy, including serving on the AAPA Commission on Continuing Professional Development & Education, the CT DPH Medical Orders for Life-Sustaining Treatment Advisory Taskforce, the YNHHS Bioethics committee, and the COVID-19 Ethics Advisory Workgroup. As past chair of legislative affairs for the CT Academy of PAs, Weber was responsible for leading major health care reform efforts resulting in modernization of the PA Practice Act and improved patient care for Connecticut residents.
