Michelle Umstead


Clinical Instructor

Physician Assistant Department

After graduation from the physician assistant program at PCOM in 2013, I moved across the country to Seal Beach, California where I started practicing as a PA. My first job out of school was in occupational medicine, followed by a second job in obstetrics and gynecology. I then moved back to Pennsylvania after two years of being in California and started my third job in the urgent care setting in 2015 and have been working there ever since. I then started teaching as an adjunct with the Drexel PA program in at the beginning of the 2022 in the clinical assessment labs and loved it, and then was given the opportunity to come on full time in fall of 2022. Currently I am the clinical coordinator for women’s health rotations and assisting in the clinical assessment lab as well as patient communications seminar. I am a member of the Pennsylvania Society of Physician Assistants as well as the American Academy of Physician Assistants.

I love traveling, hiking, rock climbing and going to the beach with my family.
