In the Physician Assistant Studies program at Shenandoah University you’ll be an integral member of the health care team, working with physicians to meet the needs of society’s patients.


You’ll serve in all medical specialties, treating patients’ illnesses and injuries, as well as educating them on wellness and disease prevention.

In the Physician Assistant Studies program at Shenandoah University you’ll exercise autonomy in decision-making and provide a wide range of diagnostic and therapeutic services. Physician assistant practice is patient-care centered, but may include national and international opportunities to serve in clinical, educational, research and administrative roles.


Employment of Physician Assistants is projected to grow 31% from 2018 to 2028, much faster than the average for all occupations.
