Didactic Phase

The Didactic Phase of Training incorporates 13 months of class, lab, and clinical activities.

Unlike most other programs, our students begin patient experiences in their very first week of the didactic curriculum!

Precepted by their principal faculty, and for an average of 4 hours per week during the Summer, Fall, and Spring first-year semesters, our students assist in evaluating and treating patients at the Mel Leaman Free Clinic at Emory & Henry College (located right next to our main building) - all this prior to their formal clinical rotations phase of training.

MPAS Students begin rotating through the clinic, precepted by their program faculty, for an average of 4 hours per week beginning their very first week in the MPAS Program!



Didactic Phase Coursework

The didactic phase includes just over three semesters of graduate-level full-time coursework. All of the following courses are required for progression from the didactic to clinical phase of training. The MPAS Program does not permit advanced placement and does not waive any of the below course requirements under any circumstance.

  • PA 501- Human Gross Anatomy

    Human Gross Anatomy includes lectures and cadaver lab instruction and dissection, in addition to clinical correlations and radiographic anatomy, providing students with in-depth training and experience in head-to-toe human gross anatomy and radiographic imaging pertinent to medical practice.

    Practice-Based Learning and Improvement is the first of two courses specifically designed as the PA students’ graduate-level research course with emphasis on practice-based learning and improvement (PBLI). The course includes specific training in evidence-based medicine and practices, systems-based practice, competency self-evaluation and improvement, practice/performance improvement, research methods & design, and the analysis and application of medical research. As the first of two courses, this course will serve as a foundational course enabling the PA student to develop a practice-based improvement project that will be finalized in Practice-Based Learning and Improvement II delivered during the clinical phase of training. Most of the course will be conducted via flipped-classroom in which students will receive and review presentation material prior to each class session and then discuss and apply what they have learned to activities conducted in small and large group sessions.
