This , take a look inside PCOM Georgia's Physician Assistant Studies program: students in the class of 2024 have been studying how to correctly take a patient's medical history and the body-system-based physical exams that go with this. This skill set involves knowing what questions to ask and conducting specific musculoskeletal exams (such as palpating different areas of the body, inspecting range of motion, and practicing maneuvers that could indicate health conditions).

With guidance from their professors in the lab this week, students practiced on one another so they can eventually become confident in conducting a full physical exam on standardized patients.

In honor of Women in Medicine Month, we asked students: Why did you choose to go into the healthcare field and why is equitable gender representation important to you? ⚕️

Second-year medical student Anne Belocura (DO '25) shares, "A lot of the women in my family work in the healthcare field. I’ve always looked up to them because not only did they work these long shifts at the hospital keeping people alive, they were also the glue and backbone of their families. I wanted to follow this legacy of resilient women and caregivers because being able to heal someone is such a huge honor and privilege.

However, as an immigrant, it was nerve-wracking trying to navigate the application process on my own. A lot of the students in my pre-med classes didn’t look like me. And as a woman, I’ve been told that perhaps I should go into another field because then I’d be able to get married and have kids. The more people doubted me, the harder I worked.

I pushed myself because I knew it was important for some patients to have doctors that looked like them, who understood their backgrounds. I also knew it was important for me to go into medicine because for so long, medicine has been a male-dominated field. But I think women bring unique skill sets to medicine. Also, female physicians are resilient! We can be spouses, mothers, creative, resourceful - we contain multitudes. Not to mention, how exciting is it to be challenging gender stereotypes every day and blazing the path for future female physicians?"
