“You are definitely an asset to the team, even as a learner. And we are all learning through this together.” Recent Yale Physician Associate (PA) Program graduate Naiska Cheung ’19, MMSc, PA-C, offered this advice to second-year Yale PA students, in response to a question about returning to clinical rotations, which have been disrupted because of COVID-19. Cheung is a primary care and addiction medicine PA at Staywell Health Care in Waterbury, Connecticut. The conversation took place on May 22, during a course, Covid-19 Preparedness Education: Pandemic, Populations and Patients (COPE-PPP), running from May 11 to June 19. The Yale PA class of 2020 is taking the six-week course before resuming clinical rotations.

“We had a lot of devices at home that were not being used. We thought a logical solution was to connect the seniors to these devices by soliciting donations from other people.”
