Meghan Brant graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Gustavus Adolphus College in 2002. After graduation, Meghan contemplated a career path in psychology, law or medicine. She deferred from law school for one year and embarked on multiple volunteer and shadowing experiences in the medical field. Her passion for medicine and science, experience shadowing PA’s, and volunteer experience at Shriner's Children’s Hospital, led her to pursue a career as a Physician Assistant.
Meghan obtained a Master’s degree in Physician Assistant Studies from Augsburg College in 2007. She began her career practicing in family medicine. She truly enjoyed educating, counseling, diagnosing, and managing a variety of both acute and chronic medical conditions while working with a diverse patient population in a Primary Care setting.
In August of 2012, prior to the start of the inaugural class, she joined the St. Catherine Masters of Physician Assistant Studies (MPAS) team as an Assistant Professor. She has taught on a multitude of topics across all courses offered during the didactic phase of the program. She thoroughly enjoys being in the classroom with her students. In August 2014 she began working clinically in the Health & Wellness Center here on campus. She continues to thoroughly enjoy her patient interactions and feels that her involvement in both academia and clinical practice are mutually beneficial. Her career thus far has been exciting, challenging, and highly rewarding.
