, CT,
Whether prescribing medication for a child who is sick with the flu or assisting a surgeon who is repairing a broken leg, physician assistants are highly sought-after members of the medical community. They can be found working in every health care setting, from private practice to large hospitals. 


As a PA, you may perform a wide range of duties, such as suturing wounds, developing treatment plans and assisting in surgery. You’ll prescribe medications, educate your patients and interpret medical tests. You’ll learn what a day in the life of a PA entails through first-hand experience in a wide variety of specialties and clinical settings.

We take you through four years of preprofessional undergraduate training and a 27-month professional component that leads to your master of health science degree. Our program is nationally recognized with almost all of our graduates securing their first-choice jobs within months of graduation. 

Not only will the professional component of your training give you experience in core areas of medicine, but you’ll have an opportunity to designate a wish list for two elective rotations. This may include further experience in a core rotation, such as emergency medicine, surgery, or pediatrics, or placement in a specialty practice of interest to you.
