Welcome to the Physician Assistant Studies LibGuide! I'm Jolene Miller, MLS, AHIP, director of the Mulford Health Science Library and the liaison librarian to the PA Program. I've been involved with PA Program for a long time, which helps me better understand how best to help you.
You met me at orientation, but you probably won't see me much until you start your scholarly project - though I'm available to help you with any information need, such as "Does the library have any resources to help with learn anatomy?" Yes, we do! "Can you help me get a copy of this research instrument?" Yes, I can!
The best way to contact me to ask for help or to make an appointment is Calendly: https://calendly.com/jolenemiller. We can meet in person, or by phone, Teams, or Webex.
This LibGuide provides links to information resources that you may find useful in your time here at the University of Toledo PA Program. If you need help finding additional information or have suggestions about this LibGuide, please contact me.

In PA school, you will be asked to learn (read: comprehend and apply) more material than you may have had to learn in the past. For many students, the study and test-taking skills that worked in undergrad classes are less effective in PA school. These books can help you develop academic skills for success!
Beyond the resources listed here, remember that our faculty are here to help. If you're having problems, please make an appointment sooner rather than later. Of course, the Academic Enrichment Center and the Writing Center are also available to help (the Writing Center offers online services).
No doubt about it, PA school is academically challenging. It is also challenging in many other ways, including having an impact on your significant relationships, your physical and emotional health, and other parts of your life. Find campus and other resources here. It is okay to ask for help.
If you are feeling hopeless, in crisis, or want to hurt yourself, please call or text the Suicide and Crisis Lifeline (988), for 24/7 free and confidential help. Lifeline can also help if you know someone who is in crisis.
