Physician Assistant Studies
About the Program
The Department of Physician Assistant Studies provides the academic home for students and faculty involved in the Master of Physician Assistant Studies (MPAS) degree curriculum. Upon successful completion of the curriculum, graduates receive an MPAS degree. The MPAS curriculum prepares students for entry into clinical practice as a physician assistant.
US News and World Report magazine has ranked the Program among the top 35 graduate-level physician assistant programs in the Nation.
Our aim is to provide students with an environment that is both conducive to learning the art and science of medical practice and to helping our students achieve individual growth as healthcare professionals.
The Program was first established in 1997. Today, the Program is housed within the School of Health Professions.
