Learn about Samuel Waddell
What does a firefighter and paramedic do upon retirement? For Sam Waddell, the next move was to get a Master of Science degree in order to become a certified physician assistant.
Waddell assumed he'd continue in the emergency medical field. It was a temporary physician assistant job at an ETMC First Physicians clinic that changed his mind. "Everyone was absolutely wonderful, from the patients to the people I worked with and those in the ETMC system."
In the emergency field you usually see a patient for a short time. Working here you get to follow your patients through from start to finish. You find out more about them on a personal level and that has a great lure to it."I believe everyone has a legitimate problem whether it's big or small, and that's what I'm interested in hearing. I want to know what concerns patients. I want to address those concerns."
