The Physician Assistant Program is administered within the Department of Family & Community Medicine. Student instruction is provided by the physician assistant faculty as well as by integrative instruction with the School of Medicine. Students will spend a large part of their mornings in basic sciences lectures and labs given by School of Medicine faculty and at least 6 hours in small group tutorials in the PA classrooms. Afternoons are devoted to PA classes, workshops, and clinical skills.

A Master of Science degree will be awarded upon successful completion of the curriculum.
