About Robert D Hadley

Robert D. Hadley (Bob), PhD, PA-C is an Adjunct Associate Professor for the University of Florida School of Physician Assistant Studies. He joined the faculty part-time in April of 2023. Bob began his academic career as a research scientist and made the switch to PA practice and PA education in 1997 after graduating from the Medical University of South Carolina PA Program.

He has been on the faculty of MUSC, the University of Kentucky, and Jefferson College of Health Sciences (which became part of Radford University in 2019). He retired from Radford University at the end of 2022 and has moved from Roanoke, Virginia to Fernandina Beach, Florida.

Bob has worked clinically in Internal Medicine, Family Medicine and Urgent Care, and has applied his familiarity with primary care and a broad approach to medicine to his teaching over the years. He has a special connection with preventive medicine, and especially the care of patients with diabetes.

Bob has taught and designed courses in Clinical Medicine, Pathophysiology and Research Methods/Master’s Project. He is passionate about student competencies, and PA students being prepared to practice clinically from Day 1 after graduation. On the other hand, he tends not to take other things too seriously!

Bob has a long history of being active in AAPA American Academy of Physician Assistants (AAPA), Physician Assistant Education Association (PAEA) volunteer positions, and he currently serves on the PAEA Board of Directors.
