MERIDIAN-Idaho State University’s David Martin, who teaches in Meridian, Caldwell and Pocatello, has been awarded the Idaho Academy of Physician Assistants’ Distinguished Service award.




Martin, academic coordinator and clinical assistant professor for ISU’s physician assistant studies department, accepted the award during the IAPA Annual Meeting and Continuing Medical Education Conference Annual Awards Reception on Friday, April 6, in Sun Valley. The award seeks to highlight PAs who demonstrate exemplary service to their patients, the community, and the physician assistants’ (PA) profession. Martin has been a faculty member for 15 years, serving as academic coordinator for the past eight.

In addition to his work at ISU, Martin has also served in various capacities within the IAPA and several terms on the Idaho Board of Medicine, as an advocate for PAs in the political arena.
