Grand Forks, N.D.Michael Bishop, DC, PA-C joins Altru Health System as part of the orthopedics team. "Medicine is a way to help people deal with complications of aging or trauma. My approach is a simple one: listen,” says Bishop. “People know their body best, it is my job to interpret the signs and symptoms then provide them with recommendations and choices for treatment." 

Michael attended Northwestern Health Sciences University where he received his Bachelor of Science in Human Biology and Doctorate of Chiropractic. He went on to earn his Master of Physician Assistant Studies at the University of North Dakota School of Medicine and Health Sciences.
