Why I Volunteer: Ticco Robinson, MS, PA-C

Ticco Robinson, MS, PA-C, is a Board Certified PA who works at Tufts Medical Center Willliam B. Schwartz Division of Nephrology. Robinson has recently volunteered with NCCPA, so we asked him to share what his experience was like.

Where did you graduate from PA school?

Northeastern University, class of 2013.

How did you find out about this volunteering opportunity, and which committees were you part of?

I received an email from NCCPA looking for Nephrology PAs to assist in creating and revising content for the CAQ exam.

What insights did you gain from your volunteering experience, and did it benefit your professional growth?

It was a very good exercise in helping determine the knowledge level expected of a PA in Nephrology with at least two years of experience. It was also a true honor to work alongside other Nephrology PAs from around the country, as I was able to gain a great deal of insights from them and incorporate it into my own practice.

What advice would you give to someone thinking about volunteering with NCCPA?

Be open to learning from others and keep in mind that everything we do is to better our collective profession.

Is there anything else you’d like to share about your volunteering journey with NCCPA?

It is a rewarding experience, and a good way to give back to the profession that has given so much to each of us.
