What will I learn?

If you have a genuine interest in medicine and in helping people, physician assistant studies may be a good career path. You will participate in a rigorous academic program without the cost of a lengthy medical school program and residency. As a physician assistant, you will be trained and licensed to practice medicine under the supervision of a licensed physician, contributing to patient care in nearly all medical and surgical specialties. Physician assistants perform physical exams, diagnose and treat illnesses, order and interpret tests, counsel patients on preventive health care, and in most states write prescriptions.
