MPAS, PA-C

Lisa D'Andrea-Lenell is the first physician assistant to have her own radio show. Her XM Radio Show, "Partners in Practice," airs weekly Monday through Friday on ReachMD XM 160. Her varied career as a physician assistant has taken her from providing HIV education in Ghana to lobbying on Capitol Hill for PA issues, from delivering medical care in the jungle of Honduras to hosting her own radio show. She said her achievements were only possible because of her willingness to take advantage of opportunities presented to her, even if they seemed difficult or impossible. She is currently employed as a PA and Clinical Director for an internal medicine practice in Libertyville Illinois.

She is a graduate of the Physician Assistant Program at Midwestern University in Downers Grove, IL. She has continued her relationship with Midwestern University working as an Adjunct Clinical Professor and a preceptor for PA students. Lisa received her Master's Degree in Physician Assistant Studies from the University of Nebraska. She has published in the prestigious peer-reviewed medical journal, Dermatologic Surgery. Ms. D'Andrea-Lenell was our guest speaker at our 2011 white coat and PA student graduation. Her inspiring speech is available on South College presidents website.
