Message from the Physician Assistant Studies Program Director
Welcome to the Mount Union Physician Assistant Studies Program!
The Physician Assistant Studies Program is a Master’s-level program at Mount Union, and we are excited to have you as a potential applicant!
Our Physician Assistant Studies Program is dedicated to the development of competent, compassionate healthcare providers who are able to work in conjunction with the supervising physician as an integral participant of the medical team. We offer a curriculum rich in biomedical and clinical preparatory sciences, which allows students to become critical thinkers. Our program curriculum develops the medical decision-making and problem-solving skills that may be applied to patient situations encountered in clinical practice. Our students benefit greatly from our PA faculty, who are practicing Physician Assistants working in clinical settings, bringing firsthand experience and relevant material straight into the classroom.
You have chosen a wonderful profession to enter. Physician Assistants have a wide range of opportunities afforded them in the realm of medicine. PAs are valuable members of today’s healthcare delivery teams, as they work along with physicians to deliver quality care to patients in all areas of medicine. PAs can work nearly anywhere physicians are found. Forbes ranked Physician Assistant Studies as one of “The Best Master’s Degrees for Jobs in 2015.”
Please let me know if I can assist you as you work to reach your goal of entering the Mount Union Physician Assistant Studies Program. Best wishes to you as you pursue the exciting journey toward entering the Physician Assistant profession!
