Forty for 40

Completing the Master of Physician Assistant Studies program has fulfilled Adam Carreiro’s lifelong dream of becoming a medical provider.

Carreiro, who was in the two-year program’s first graduating class in 2017, had set his sights on becoming a PA since graduating in 2009 from the University of Massachusetts Amherst with a master’s degree in kinesiology. He then spent several years working as a home health aide for adults with intellectual disabilities, an EMT, and as an Emergency Room technician at Brigham and Women’s Faulkner Hospital.

“We invited Adam to join our inaugural cohort because of his maturity and compassion,” said Director Lisa Walker. “With these traits and combined with his newly acquired skills and knowledge as a PA, he will be an incredible asset to our communities just as he was to our program.”
