Physician Assistant Program

Thirty students are pioneers of a sort, as they’re members of the inaugural class of the USF Health Physician Assistant program. The group is embarking on an intense two-year education process that their teachers say is as demanding as the one doctors go through. We’ll tell you about the program, and introduce you to some of the future P.A.’s, on University Beat on WUSF 89.7.
