A Gulf Coast Veterans Healthcare System employee is set to retire after more than 50 years of service.
Murl Dotson is a GCVHCS physician’s assistant, a United States Airforce veteran, and a longtime Biloxi VA Medical Center employee.
Dotson also served as the Mississippi Academy of Physician Assistants President for nearly 10 years. He was one of the few practicing P.A.s in Mississippi before 2000 and was instrumental in advocating legislation for the licensure of P.A.s in the state of Mississippi. “It’s been interesting. I’ve enjoyed my job, liked what I have done.”
Dotson also received a proclamation as well as a surprise party to honor all he has done.
