Physician Assistant Student Success
Mount Union’s PA program provides numerous networking opportunities for students and leads to outstanding exam and job placement rates.
Students within the PA program will earn a Master of Science degree upon successful completion of 27 months of coursework and clinical rotations.
Clinical rotations provide ample opportunities for students to impress potential employers, often leading to jobs following graduation. Current job opportunities for physician assistants are vast; with the U.S. Department of Labor indicating a 38% increase in job availability between the years of 2012-2022.
The 2011 inaugural class ranked 19thout of 106 schools in the national PACKRAT exam, which measures students’ knowledge and competency in the field. They also received an exceptional pass rate of 95% on the PANCE (Physician Assistant National Certifying Exam), surpassing the national average of 92%. See additional PANCE results.
