Physician Assistant Studies- M.P.A.S
Emory and Henry College’s rigorous 27-month physician assistant studies program prepares students for practice as physician assistants (PAs) and eligibility to sit for the Physician Assistant National Certification Examination (PANCE). PAs are comprehensively trained medical providers. In the U.S., PAs are nationally certified and state licensed to practice medicine and prescribe medications and currently practice in every setting and every medical and surgical specialty. PA practice includes comprehensive patient care incorporating patient interviewing, evaluation, diagnosis, treatment plan development, implementation and follow-up and patient education and counseling. Since the origination of the physician assistant profession, PAs have been improving access to high quality medical care for patients across the U.S and throughout the world.
