Jenna Pardoe, PA-C is a National Board-Certified Physician Assistant. Originally from Tyler, TX, Jenna started her career in medicine in 2015 with a bachelor’s degree in Allied Health from Texas A&M University, continuing her education with Harding University’s Physician Assistant Program in 2017 and graduating with a master’s degree in Physician Assistant Studies.
Jenna began as a practicing PA with OrthoArkansas in February 2018 and works directly with fellowship-trained hand surgeon, Dr. Jeanine Andersson in diagnosing and treating orthopedic hand and upper extremity issues. She is an active member of the American Association of Physician Assistants and the Arkansas Academy of Physician Assistants.
As a PA, Jenna is required to complete at least 100 hours of continuing education every two years and pass a re-certifying board exam every ten years. Physician assistants are considered dependent providers and are overseen by their supervising physician and the State Medical Board; in practice PAs are considered an extension of their supervising physician. Jenna’s training as an advanced practice provider enhances not only our clinic’s depth of knowledge, but also our flow of communication and the quality of our patient care.
