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.

Community Impact Day


PA Class of 2017 and 2018 students hosted Community Impact Day at Norfolk's Tidewater Park Elementary on Saturday, February 20. Educational and fun stations for the students and their families to visit were created and manned by PA students. The community service project was made possible through a collaboration of EVMS' M. Foscue Brock Institute for Community and Global Health, United Way of South Hampton Roads, and Norfolk Public Schools. 

The EVMS School of Health Professions will not be placing students on clinical experiences of any kind in North Carolina until further notice.
