Megan Maloney, an Orthopedic Physician Assistant at The South Bend Clinic’s Main Campus, received her Master of Science degree in physician assistant studies at the University of Saint Francis in Ft. Wayne, Indiana. She specialized in trauma surgery. She earned her undergraduate degree, a Bachelor of Science degree in Sports Medicine, at the University of Indianapolis.
Megan’s interest in medicine developed after suffering an injury during high school athletics. She spent a great deal of time in the athletic training room, observing her high school athletic trainer as she cared for the injured. She then began to shadow as a student athletic trainer and found her passion for orthopedics. She went on to study sports medicine and became an athletic trainer, working at Mishawaka High School. She worked closely with several sports medicine physicians and orthopedists and decided that she wanted to pursue a degree as a PA to further her abilities to provide specialized care for her patients. After completing her training, she worked in general, vascular, and trauma surgery before returning to orthopedics.
Megan is a Fellow of the American Academy of Physician Assistants, a Fellow of the American Association of Surgical Physician Assistants and a Physician Assistants in Orthopedic Surgery Fellow.
Megan was born and raised in Mishawaka. She is an avid supporter of pet therapy and is currently training to become a certified therapy team with her dog. She also enjoys spending time with her family, traveling, baking, and doing DIY projects.
Megan will be practicing at The South Bend Clinic’s main Campus downtown on Eddy Street.
