Dr. Jeffrey Easley

Assistant Professor, Medical Director of Physician Assistant Studies


Growing up on a small farm in northern Indiana, I spent a great deal of time outdoors and always had a fascination with science. Having my own family doc as a mentor, I went on to major in pre-med (Biology/Chemistry) and had an opportunity to go to Panama on a medical practicum my junior year of undergrad. I fell in love with doing missionary medicine and have been blessed to travel on medical mission trips to Cambodia, Nicaragua, Dominican Republic, Haiti and Guatemala. In communities where I have lived, I have been able to volunteer as a medical provider at free clinics. These experiences have allowed me to bring a passion for caring of the underserved into the classroom, which hopefully drives our students to do the same in their career as medical providers. I often use examples from clinical practice to help students understand academic concepts.
