The didactic curriculum in the physician assistant program is designed to meet the needs of students who will be working with physicians in primary care and medical specialties and will be enhanced by course work in ethics, health systems, epidemiological principles, research and a graduate project.
The following courses and clinical preceptorships are required of all physician assistant students. Generally, this sequence will be followed, although the faculty reserves the right to make modifications in title, content, and order or length of teaching time. Physician assistant students take courses and follow rotations unique to the program. Faculty are drawn from each of the University’s colleges.
