About

The Physician Assistant Studies program at Eastern Michigan University will prepare its graduates to be certified and licensed to practice as physician assistants under the supervision of a practicing physician. 

Overview

The aim of the Physician Assistant Studies program at Eastern Michigan University

 is to facilitate the acquisition of knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary to respond positively to the challenges and opportunities of future trends in healthcare delivery. Learning methodologies include traditional lecture, problem-based learning, small group projects, role-playing, use of simulated patients, case-based problem solving and hands-on work in the patient simulation lab.

Learning outcomes

The focus of the program is on higher order learning that will prepare PA students for critical thinking, ethical decision making and the synthesis and judgment of problems based on the biopsychosocial model.

 PA students will need to be insightful and aware of their own professional roles and limitations, as well as the needs, styles, and values of patients, and those of other health professionals. They should aspire to be life-long learners of the art and science of medicine, as well as active learners who ask questions, uncover meaning and make decisions.
