James Millward, PA-S
Indianapolis, IN

James is a student in the Indiana University–School of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences PA program in Indianapolis, Ind. He was born and raised in Salt Lake City, Utah, completing his undergraduate at Brigham Young University with a B.S. in neuroscience and a psychology minor.

During his undergraduate education, James was president of the BYU Neuroscience Student Association, where he was actively involved in outreach and service with the student organization. Neuroscience research was an interest that James also pursued while at BYU; he worked a research assistant in the BYU Neurophysiology Lab and was awarded a student grant for his research.

After graduation, James relocated to Indianapolis and began working in research with the Indiana University School of Medicine Department of Psychiatry. James’ experiences and patient interactions in clinical research fueled his desire to treat patients and he made the decision to enter PA school. Upon acceptance, the Indiana University School of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences awarded him the Dean’s Academic Excellence Recognition Award. James was then honored to be elected as the 2016 Student Academy AOR representative for his PA program’s student society.

Outside of science and medicine, James is an outdoorsman and loves spending time in the mountains and wilderness with his family. He plays the piano to relax and enjoys the many local sports events in Indianapolis.
