The Physician Assistant Practice MPAP program offered by University of Southern California trains students in a range of medical, social and behavioral sciences required for competent clinical practice. Physician assistants are educated in basic medical sciences and clinical disciplines, including human anatomy, physiology, pharmacology and clinical laboratory medicine. Further, Physician Assistant Practice students are taught to hone the cognitive skills required for medical decision-making.

The physician assistant (PA) is a health care professional qualified by academic and clinical education and by formal certification to practice medicine with the supervision of a doctor of medicine or osteopathy. PAs perform diagnostic, therapeutic, preventive and health maintenance services in any setting in which physicians provide care. PAs are accountable for their own actions as well as being accountable to their supervising physician.
