Here, you will find information about the profession, our curriculum, admissions and frequently asked questions. I am so pleased you have chosen to research this exciting field of study.

A career as a PA is rewarding, challenging, and full of opportunities to make a difference in the lives of many. You have chosen a wonderful profession to become a member. PA’s work in almost any area of medicine and are valued members of the health care team. The Physician Assistant profession is one of the fastest growing careers today. In 2013, Forbes Magazine voted Physician Assistant Studies to be the #1 best Master’s degree for jobs. They also recently reported that PA’s rose to No. 5 among the top 10 most frequently placed medical care providers in 2014.
