Master of Physician Assistant Program

The Master of Physician Assistant (MPA) Program is an accredited 28-month program that provides graduates the skills and resources to deliver health care as physician assistant leaders in an evolving health-care industry. 

Graduates of the MPA Program are eligible to sit for the Physician Assistant National Certification Exam (PANCE).  Upon successful completion of the PANCE, physician assistants may use the “PA-C” designation, pursue state licensure and practice medicine with a supervising physician.
