About Christine H. Bruce, PAC
My philosophy for treating patients is always to put the patient first, actively listen to them and provide patient-centered care while following the best practices in evidence-based medicine. Obtaining and performing a comprehensive history and physical examination determines the best way to improve patient care and outcomes.
After graduating as a nationally certified physician assistant, I started my career in Pottsville in 1983. Highlights of my career include being the founding Graduate Physician Assistant Program Director at DeSales University and the Penn State College of Medicine. I have continued to practice hospital-based medicine throughout my 40-year career and have served as the Medical/Surgical House Staff Officer. My career has provided opportunities in internal medicine, sports medicine and family medicine and has allowed me to care for underserved populations. I am also a distinguished fellow of the American Academy of Physician Assistants.
I received a Bachelor of Science in Physician Assistant Studies from St. Francis University in Loretto, PA, a Master of Health Services Administration from St. Joseph’s College in Brooklyn, New York and a Doctor of Medical Science from the University of Lynchburg in Virginia. I participated in the Harvard Macy Health Professions Scholar Program, where I was an adjunct faculty member.
In addition, I was a tenured professor at DeSales University, an Associate Professor of Medicine at Penn State College of Medicine, an Assistant Clinical Professor at Hahnemann/Drexel in Philadelphia and an Assistant Clinical Professor at St. Francis University.
Married for more than 40 years, I am the mother of two sons and a daughter and the grandmother of three darling granddaughters. Away from work, I enjoy being at the beach in Delaware and spending time with friends and family.
