It provides exceptional clinical placements, with two elective rotations during your clinical year.

Your two years of training prepare you to sit for the National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants (NCCPA) exam. As a credentialed physician assistant, you will practice medicine with physician supervision, collaborate with other members of the health care team and serve as a strong advocate for patient health and well-being.
