About

The Physician Assistant Studies Program at Augsburg University is a full-time program (33 students per class) that provides a broad, case-based, primary care curriculum.

Overview

There is an emphasis on diverse and underserved populations throughout the curriculum. Our core mission is to train highly capable PAs who will serve the community with uncompromising commitment and compassion.

The Physician Assistant Studies Program at Augsburg University was established in 1995 and was the first accredited PA program in Minnesota.  Students are trained using an active-learning model which incorporates case-based small group discussions, in-lecture clinical vignettes, and hands-on skill-based workshops. In the Clinical Seminar Course, PA students are assigned reading material beforehand and then work with clinicians to synthesize, apply and justify the use of that medical knowledge in small group settings.

Mission of the Program

The mission of the Augsburg PA Program is based on a foundation of respect and sensitivity to persons of all cultures and backgrounds and oriented towards providing medical care to underserved populations. Students are well educated in current medical theory and practice, and graduates are encouraged to work in primary care settings. The program promotes dedication to excellence in performance, with the highest standards of ethics and integrity, and commitment to lifelong personal and professional development.
