The University of Findlay’s master of physician assistant program has received re-accreditation approval from the Accreditation Review Commission on Education for the Physician Assistant (ARC-PA).
“The faculty and staff of the physician assistant program have reached a significant milestone, and I congratulate them on this accomplishment,” said Andrea Koepke, Ph.D., dean of the College of Health Professions.
The program received its original accreditation in 2000.
During the first four semesters of the University’s program, students participate in classroom instruction using various instructional modalities including lecture, demonstration, small- and large-group activities and seminar-type class work.
During a student’s last three semesters at Findlay, each student chooses and works on a research topic while training full time at a clinical site. Each student completes rotations in family practice, general internal medicine, general pediatrics, women’s health, general surgery, emergency medicine and psychiatry/mental health.
Upon graduation, physician assistants take a national certification examination developed by the National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants in conjunction with the National Board of Medical Examiners.
