YUKON, Okla. – Becca Schmedt was driven to a career in family medicine based on a strong desire to help others, a love for learning, and an interest in the human connection involved in treating the whole family.
She brings that drive and passion to her new position as a physician assistant at Mercy Clinic in Yukon. In her new role, Schmedt hopes to impact people's lives in a positive way by serving not just as a clinician, but also an advocate, coordinator, counselor, information resource and, at times, support for her patients.
“I consider it an honor and a privilege that patients share their lives and stories with me, and entrust themselves to my care,” she said. “I believe in a team-based approach to medicine so we can all work together for the greater good of the community.”
Schmedt received her bachelor’s degree in modern dance from the University of Oklahoma in Norman, Oklahoma, and her master’s degree in physician assistant studies from the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston, Texas. She has worked for family practice clinics for the last eight years.
In her spare time, she enjoys dancing, hiking, cooking, music, wine tasting and spending time with family. She is married with two young children.
