30 Students complete PA program

June 03, 2014

When the students recite the PA professional oath, they pledge to put the health, safety and privacy of their patients first and adhere to the profession’s Code of Ethics.  The graduates, who earned the Bachelor of Science in Health Sciences and the Master of Science in Physician Assistant Studies, are going on to work in a variety of settings under the supervision of licensed physicians, ranging from primary care providers to specialists. Many will be working with diverse patient populations, one of the missions of the program, which teaches about the impact of socioeconomic factors on health care and its availability.
