Alison Hopper  

Assistant Professor, Physician Assistant Studies


Alison is originally from West Virginia but first came to Indiana for her undergraduate degree in Biology at Huntington University. She then received a MSM in Physician Assistant Studies in 2008 at Trevecca Nazarene University in Nashville, TN. She practiced there until 2016 before moving back to Indiana where she has continued to practice as a urology PA. Her interest in education was sparked while training newly hired advanced practice providers within her specialty. She joined Saint Francis faculty first as an adjunct in early 2023 and then transitioned to full time faculty later that year. She is passionate about the strengths of the PA profession and is excited to train the next generations of PAs.
