The role of physician assistants in the health system continues to grow both in value and need. Since 2011, the University of Bridgeport’s Physician Assistant Institute (PAI) has offered the Physician Assistant (M.S.) degree program in order to address this demand by providing a preventative approach to medicine.

Pursuing your degree at UB’s Physician Assistant Institute allows you to take advantage of the following benefits:

  • Curriculum that emphasizes community service and global health
  • Small class sizes that allow you to work closely with our diverse faculty
  • On-site cadaver lab
  • Integrative medicine approach
  • 28-month schedule and January start date

Graduates of the program have found great success: over 95% are full-time practicing PA’s, according to UB PAI Alumni surveys. More than 75% of UB alumni surveyed were employed within the first month of graduation and nearly all were employed within three months. Many UB PAI alumni are working in Connecticut and the surrounding areas in hospitals as well as doctors’ offices. While the most popular fields are surgery and emergency medicine, our alumni also work in family medicine, dermatology, cardiology, medical ICU, neonatal ICU, and plastic surgery.

UB’s campus is located on the Seaside Park waterfront, providing easy access to the train, ferry, and major roadways such as I-95 and routes 25 and 8. UB’s urban location allows plenty of opportunity for students to get involved with social, cultural, and community service activities.
