The curriculum at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center is a robust blend of academic learning and hands-on clinical training. Students begin with four semesters of lecture and bedside demonstration in medical and behavioral sciences. This foundational coursework is followed by four semesters of clinical rotations in a wide range of disciplines and settings.
The mission of the Physician Assistant Studies Program is to:
- Excel in the art and science of physician assistant education.
- Promote interprofessional primary health care delivery to a diverse and dynamic population.
- Encourage leadership, service, and excellence among our faculty, staff, students, and graduates.
- Foster a commitment to diversity and inclusion, evidence-based medicine, quality improvement, and patient safety.
The Accreditation Review Commission on Education for the Physician Assistant (ARC-PA) has granted Accreditation-Continued to the Physician Assistant Program sponsored by UT Southwestern.
