Master of Science in Physician Assistant
Monmouth’s full-time, 95-credit physician assistant (PA) graduate program will give you the rigorous, hands-on learning environment you need to become a critical part of the changing healthcare landscape. As a PA, you will be a licensed medical professional and an important solution to the looming problem of healthcare access, especially as aging Baby Boomers and those newly insured by the healthcare reform need more care.
One cohort of students enrolls each fall and advances through the 36-month program together, giving you a team of up to 30 student colleagues who can share insights and support. Monmouth’s broad-based curriculum will give you the foundation you need to practice in any specialty. Experienced, highly skilled faculty will give you the personalized attention you need to excel.
Rigorous classroom instruction is combined with extensive work in clinical settings in Monmouth’s physician assistant program. The program consists of a didactic phase and a clinical phase. The 42-week didactic phase includes classroom and clinical skills laboratory instruction, with hospital and clinic experiences. In the 60-week clinical phase, you will participate in clinical clerkships, where you will be assigned to preceptors at various hospitals and physician offices.
