About Michael Shibley, PA-C

Michael joined Pediatric Orthopaedic Associates in March 2016. Prior to POA, Michael worked in Family Medicine where he gained valuable experience that has been foundational to his medical career. During his time there he developed a more focused passion for working with children, specifically children with orthopaedic injuries and disease states.

 

Michael received his Bachelor’s Degree in Therapeutic Recreation from Longwood University in Farmville, Virginia, graduating with honors in December 2006. Following the completion of this degree, Michael’s interest for medicine grew.  This prompted several months of PA school prerequisite courses along with working as a nursing assistant in a busy pediatric practice to gain more experience in medicine. After finishing his prerequisite courses and successfully interviewing for multiple PA programs, Michael began the Mercer University Physician Assistant program in January 2009.  Upon entry into his first rotation in pediatrics, he began to build a solid knowledge base while developing a passion for working with children.  After this initial rotation, he completed rigorous core rotations in emergency medicine, family medicine, orthopaedics, general surgery, urgent care and multiple other specialties.  With each rotation, Michael''s desire to work in pediatrics grew, along with a passion to utilize his mind and a more hands-on approach to care for his patients.  During his time there, Michael was president of the first Christian Medical & Dental Association chapter on campus.  Following twenty-eight months of rigorous academic and clinical education, Michael graduated in 2011 with his Masters of Medical Science in Physician Assistant Studies. Shortly thereafter, he obtained his Georgia Medical license after passing the Physician Assistant National Certification Exam.

 

Outside of work, Michael enjoys spending time with his wife, Rachel, and their three sons: David, Joseph, and Luke.  In his leisure time Michael enjoys playing guitar, working out, fishing, hiking, and serving in the children’s ministry at his church.
