The didactic curriculum for the Physician Assistant (M.S.) degree program consists of four terms and is the preparation for the fifth, sixth and seventh terms which are devoted to clinical activities. Additionally, you will be allowed one elective to help establish further training in one of the core requirements or explore other clinical interests. The curriculum is 105 credits in total.
During the clinical phase students will return to the Physician Assistant Institute (PAI) for clerkship (rotation) evaluations, examination and Medical Seminars. During Medical Seminar, students will continue with clinical lectures and education in integrated medicine, global health themes and medical ethics. The capstone project will be due in the seventh and final term of the course of study.
All students are also required to complete all core supervised clinical rotations.
