Dr. Skylar Stewart-Clark joined the faculty at the CSU PA program after three years of practice in Adult Urology and Urologic Oncology at the Medical University of South Carolina and serving as adjunct faculty in the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) PA program. Clark holds a Bachelor of Science and Doctorate of Philosophy in biomedical engineering from Louisiana Tech University and a Master of Science in physician assistant studies from MUSC. As part of her doctoral training, she completed a four-year Teaching Fellowship sponsored by the National Science Foundation. After completion of her PhD, she spent several years as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine at MUSC, where she worked on various projects with clinician scientists to find solutions for orthopedic, dental, and cardiac clinical applications. In 2009 she served at Dream Center Clinic of Seacoast Church as a volunteer translator and assistant, and eventually this led her on the path to participating in international medical and surgical missions in Central America. Those experiences and following the prompting of a never-ending call to practice medicine led her to pursue training as a physician assistant in 2013.
Clark is an active member of the South Carolina Academy of Physician Assistants, where she served as chair of the ASPIRE (pre-PA) committee for two years. She is passionate about unconscious bias and diversity in medicine and has guest lectured on these topics. She continues to volunteer with the Seacoast Dream Center Clinic and organizes and chairs the annual community health fair every October. She is thrilled to be part of the CSU PA program, where she can not only share her knowledge, but also her faith with fellow faculty and PA students.
