The Marcia L Feldkamp, PA
Scholarship in Physician Assistant Studies

Dr. Feldkamp, PA, MSPH, PhD is a graduate of our PA Medex Class 9 and has dedicated her career to the study of birth defects. Her interest in birth defect epidemiology began while working as a physician assistant and caring for women of reproductive age. Due to the limitations of existing data in Utah, Dr. Feldkamp led the efforts to develop a clinically based birth defects surveillance system within the Utah Department of Health in order to conduct the necessary research to improve our understanding of pathogenesis and etiology. The Utah Birth Defect Network (UBDN) is a surveillance system that is population-based, statewide, and operates through active case-ascertainment of birth defects. Dr. Feldkamp was also one of several founding members of the National Birth Defects Prevention Network in 1997.
