Physician Assistant: Curriculum

We mold critical thinkers and caring leaders who make a difference in peoples' lives.

A holistic education goes beyond the textbooks and arithmetic. Core and program-specific classes must prepare graduates for handling real-world situations with a human touch while upholding the highest professional standards. The Physician Assistant Studies Program curriculum at Adventist University is specifically designed to meet requirements and standards set by the ARC-PA for completion of a physician assistant program. Our program is 27 months long, consisting of 63 trimester hours of didactic education and 44 trimester hours of clinical education.
