The Master of Science in Physician Assistant Studies Program is a 24-month, full-time program designed to prepare students for the Physician Assistant National Certification Examination (PANCE) and for a successful career as a physician assistant. The program consists of two 12-month phases: didactic and clinical. Students will learn about healthcare in a variety of settings and across the lifespan.
