In the Spotlight

Mariah Jones

My name is Mariah Jones, PA-C. I am certified and licensed by the state of Pennsylvania as a medical and osteopathic physician assistant.I am a National Health Service Corp (HRSA) recipient eager to continue providing the highest quality of care in health services to the Philadelphia community.

In my previous career as a pharmacy technician, I was exposed to the physician assistant field and my passion for medicine began. I later began shadowing medical providers at a local emergency department and ultimately decided to become a physician assistant. I completed my undergraduate degree in Kinesiology from Michigan State University in 2015 and physician assistant studies at Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine (PCOM) in 2017. After completing my degree I began practicing in a private practice doing house calls for senior patients. Currently, I have the pleasure of working in primary care and infectious disease at a local FQHC.

I had the pleasure of joining NSBPA in 2019 and presently serve as secretary. My experiences with the healthcare system, as both a patient and provider, served as a motivator to join this illustrious organization. My goal as a leadership member of the NSBPA is to increase the amount of minority students and providers within the medical field. According to the AAPA data, only 2.7 percent of PAs identify as Black or African American, 3.4 percent as Hispanic, and 3.9 identify as Asian. My hope is that through the hard work and dedication of the NSBPA, we will be able to increase the number of diverse physician assistants in the future.
