Oklahoma City University (OCU) has embarked on a major initiative to impact the delivery of health care in Oklahoma through the development of a new Physician Assistant (PA) Program.


The OCU curriculum provides twelve months of classroom training presented in a systems-based format. By using this approach, students are able to focus their intellectual energies on cardiology, then pulmonology and so on until all the body’s systems have been covered. In addition to the basic and medical sciences, the Program has a specific interest in developing student passion in the medical humanities.

Programme Structure

A unique aspect of the OCU program involves providing a parallel online course of study in business aspects of medicine. This added component provides the OCU PA student a greater understanding of medical practice management which is critical to contributing to a successful practice. The final month of the PA Program is a time for students to demonstrate competence in the art and science of medicine and readiness to enter the PA profession.
