Congratulations To Our EMA 2021 AHP Spotlight of the Quarter!Our AHP Spotlight of the Quarter is Christin Bawa, P.A.!
Med School: 🩺University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill – Master of Arts in Exercise and Sports Science
Residency: 🥼George Washington University – Masters of Science and Health Sciences/Physician Assistant Program
Christin Bawa was drawn to PA school when she saw how much there was to learn and do in the medical field during her time in orthopedic surgery. She ended up choosing emergency medicine because of her love for focused patient encounters and a fast-paced environment. She appreciates being able to utilize her orthopedic background and enjoys how challenging emergency medicine is. Her favorite part of the job is being the “calm in the storm” of a patient’s ED visit.
Outside of work, Christin is a mother of three, her youngest being born in April 2020 at the start of the pandemic. She moved to California from the East Coast about ten years ago, and enjoys running by the ocean to relieve stress and find perspective. She has run 12 half marathons and 1 full marathon. As an undergraduate athletic trainer, she worked the 2000 NCAA National Championship Football Game. A fun fact about Christin is that in high school, she was an exchange student in Russia just after the fall of Communism. She was able to tour and go inside the cosmonaut Sputnik training module.
