The Union College Physician Assistant Program prepares students from diverse backgrounds for excellence in the physician assistant profession, developing their God-given abilities in harmony with the highest physical, mental and spiritual ideals.
Union College offers a 33-month professional course of study, leading to a Master of Physician Assistant Studies (MPAS) degree. The program is fully accredited by the Accreditation Review Commission on Education for the Physician Assistant Inc.(ARC-PA), and graduates may sit for the Physician Assistant National Certifying Examination.
Students may apply for the professional program if they will have met the necessary admission requirements (or their equivalents) prior to entering the program.
Union College also offers a three-year (six-semester) pre-physician assistant curriculum (PDF). The pre-PA curriculum prepares the student for application to a number of professional PA programs across the country, and is particularly suited to the goals of the Union College PA program.
The Union College physician assistant graduate will pursue the vision and goals of the program.
