"We're delighted to have Dr. Huckabee join our faculty," said Kyle Meyer, Ph.D., senior associate dean for the School of Allied Health Professions. "He brings an exceptional record as an educator and researcher. He has an outstanding vision for the future of our physician assistant program, one that will continue to advance the great progress the PA program enjoyed under Dr. Somers."
Grant and classroom success
Under Dr. Huckabee's leadership, Union College received federal support of almost $2.5 million for training grants to support projects that provide health care for underserved populations.
Also under his guidance, Union College PA graduates posted 100 percent first-time pass rates on the PA National Certifying Examination four of the past six years. Nearly half of those graduates serve in Nebraska communities.
Dr. Huckabee has 29 years of clinical practice, primarily in rural family practice and emergency medicine, and more recently in pediatrics.
