Marquette University Physician Assistant Program Awards the 2019 Distinguished Preceptor of the Year Award to Dr. Muhammad Ahmad
Dr. Ahmad was nominated by his students, who feel “lucky” to have the chance to learn under his tutelage. One student shared that he learned more from Dr. Ahmad than from any other preceptor during his clinical year. Others have noted how much they value time spent discussing cases and conditions, strengthening their evidence-based medicine treatment skills.
Since 2016, Dr. Ahmad has been taking under his wing 4-5 students per year for a 6-week internship in family medicine. This commitment to teaching future health care providers is so appreciated by the faculty of MU PA. We are not able to prepare students adequately without hands-on, community-based experiences.
The MU PA program values the time Dr. Ahmad spends with the students and we value his feedback on students’ professionalism and performance, as well as his observations on their growth and opportunities for improvement.
Jean Fischer afirmed these sentiments, saying, "I speak for the faculty of the Physician Assistant Program when I say we are privileged to have Dr. Ahmad on our team."

Aubrey Grabow, PA-C
Read Kara Winan's introduction of Aubrey Grabow as Preceptor of the Year
Hello, my name is Kara Winans and it is my pleasure to introduce Aubrey Grabow as the Preceptor of the Year. Aubrey is a Marquette PA graduate from the class of 2004, who began her career in Pain Management, and soon after transitioned to her current practice as a family medicine PA in Naperville, IL. My classmates, Ruth, Alyssa, and I were lucky enough to complete our family practice rotation with Aubrey during our clinical year, and we can all speak to how deserving she is of this award. Aubrey has been a great teacher and mentor in this past year, and her commitment to patient care inspired each of us. All three of us recalled stories together of the various ways Aubrey went above and beyond for her patients - from a thorough physical exam that identified an abnormal skin lesion, ultimately diagnosed as a melanoma in a 20 year old girl, to listening and empathizing with a well-established patient whose son had recently passed away from a drug overdose when she initially presented for a classic case of sinusitis. She cared for the physical, emotional, and mental well-being of all of her patients, and each one came in excited to see Aubrey, feeling comfortable and confident their concerns would be heard. They knew she truly cared for their well-being. Not only is Aubrey well-respected by her patients, but also by her colleagues and physicians within the practice. Aubrey makes the PA profession proud each day with her knowledge, compassion for patient-centered care, and her mentorship of us as PA students. While we may never reach her physical height, we will strive each day to be as compassionate and hard working in our future careers. Please help me in congratulating Aubrey Grabow as the Preceptor of the Year.
