In honor of Ryan O'Hara's legacy as a Physician Assistant (PA), we have established a memorial scholarship in his name. Ryan dedicated his life to serving patients. He was a driven academic, published scholar, clinician, oncology Medical Science Liaison, industry leader, and most importantly, beloved colleague and friend.
100% of funds collected will go to an annual scholarship to support a deserving second-year graduate student within the Wake Forest PA Program. Please consider helping future PAs enter the profession Ryan was so proud to be a part of.
Education was his passion. Ryan held a certificate of added qualification in Emergency Medicine by the National Commission on the Certification of PAs. A Doctorate of Medical Science (DMSc) degree from AT-Still University. An MBA from UNC-Pembroke. All on top of being a certified PA, having graduated from Wake Forest School of Medicine's PA Studies Program with a Master's in Medical Science.
