09 Apr Carsen Hyde | Coach
Currently a Cardiovascular Surgery Physician Assistant on the civilian side and an Aeromedical Battalion PA for a Combat Aviation unit here in the Maryland Army National Guard.
I have a bachelor’s degree in Health and Exercise Sciences and a master’s degree in Exercise Physiology where I worked in an applied biochemistry lab researching human performance and metabolic/body composition. Before graduate school, I was commissioned as an Officer in the Army and had the job of Medical Operations Officer which included the task of helping soldiers improve their fitness and achieve the height and weight standards. During graduate school I was a Graduate Assistant Strength and Conditioning coach for the University of Oklahoma #BOOMER. After school, I worked for a sports performance institute as a strength and conditioning coach helping athletes get back to “Game Ready” after an injury. I hung up my coaching hat because Uncle Sam said he’d make me a Physician Assistant so I chased the dream of being able to practice both the applied and clinical science.
