Our Physician Assistant program's mission at Bryant University: To improve universal access to health care by graduating highly competent and confident physician assistants prepared to provide exceptional quality, ethical patient-centered health care in a collaborative environment.


Exceptional medical education demands exceptional hands-on training. In our Physician Assistant program at Bryant University, you'll work with patients in an unprecedented 12 clinical specialty rotations. 

During the clinical phase, you will be paired with and learn alongside preeminent doctors, PAs, and other clinicians affiliated with our clinical site partners, including many local and regional hospital systems and private practices.


  • Prepare our students to excel in all of the competencies required for PA practice by providing a rigorous and supportive program in which to develop the knowledge, interpersonal, clinical and technical skills, professional behaviors, and clinical reasoning and problem solving abilities necessary to clinical care.
  • Prepare our physician assistant students to meet the needs of our health care system by providing a strong primary care experience caring for under-served populations and by developing an understanding of the health care delivery and payment systems that affect health care access, outcomes and potential disparities.
