Physician Assistants (PA) are nationally certified and state licensed to practice medicine. For nearly 50 years, PAs have been part of the healthcare team. PAs perform a comprehensive range of medical duties, from primary care to assisting in major surgery. PAs are educated at the graduate level and practice in every medical and surgical setting and specialty. Throughout their training, PAs complete more than 2,000 hours of clinical rotations in family medicine, internal medicine, obstetrics and gynecology, pediatrics, general surgery, emergency medicine, and psychiatry.

Incoming First year and transfer students can declare pre-physician assistant upon entry to the university. Declaring the minor after initial enrollment can be done in MyMadison. Declaration requests from current students will be reviewed and ultimately approved by PPH Advising.
