Kathryn Hawley, MMS, PA-C

Director of Clinical Education, Assistant Professor | Physician Assistant Program*

Kathryn Hawley joined the School of Allied Health faculty in fall 2020 after 12 years of clinical practice in Chicago. As a physician assistant, she provided compassionate, culturally competent, evidence-based medical care to patients in underserved primary care at ACCESS Community Health Network and then gynecologic oncology at the University of Chicago Medicine. She was also a clinical preceptor to physician assistant students in their women’s health rotation. Her joy is being part of the local church and women’s discipleship. As part of the developing PA Program, she is excited to help build the clinical year curriculum and experiences, grow as an educator, engage with Cedarville students and community, and watch God’s purposes unfold.

Education and Credentials:

  • M.M.S. in Physician Assistant Studies, Midwestern University
  • B.S. in Psychology, University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign
  • Certified Physician Assistant (NCCPA)


  • Travel, time spent in nature, painting and crafts, cooking with friends
  • Why Cedarville? I never imagined how I could combine my medical skills and experience with my joy for discipleship. God knew, purposed all along, and brought me to Cedarville University to train up physician assistants to be expertly skilled, humble, compassionate medical providers and bold disciple makers for Christ in a world desperate for his truth and grace.

*Cedarville University plans to launch a physician assistant (PA) graduate program by May 2023 pending approvals by the Ohio Department of Higher Education, the Higher Learning Commission, and the Accreditation Review Commission on Education for the Physician Assistant, Inc.
