  • Congratulations to our Member of the Month, Major Emily De Leon! Major Emily De Leon, DSc, MPAS, PA-C, is a General Surgery PA currently stationed at Nellis Air Force Base in Las Vegas, Nevada. She graduated from the U.S. Air Force Academy with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Behavioral Sciences (psychology). During her Air Force career, she has been stationed at 8 bases from coast to coast and has deployed twice. One of her most memorable assignments was when she was stationed at the Pentagon working with Wounded Warriors, which ultimately inspired her to pursue medicine. She attended the military’s PA school (IPAP) and graduated with a second Bachelor and Master’s Degree in Physician Assistant Studies. She recently completed her Doctorate of Science Degree in Physician Assistant Studies at Baylor University as well as her Surgical PA Fellowship at San Antonio Military Medical Center in San Antonio, Texas.
