About

The mission of the Physician Assistant program at the University of Oklahoma School of Community Medicine is to train physician assistants to provide quality healthcare to the citizens of Oklahoma with an emphasis on serving diverse and underserved communities.

Overview

The Physician Assistant Program Goals

The goals of the University of Oklahoma  -TU School of Community Medicine  physician assistant program are:
  • To provide a quality education that enables students to become competent, caring healthcare providers. We seek to educate our students in the basic medical sciences as well as the clinical and behavioral sciences in order to prepare them for the practice of medicine both today and in the future. While training physician assistants to go into areas of primary care medicine will be our fundamental focus, we are also cognizant that PAs are increasingly serving patients in both the surgical and specialty areas of medicine.
  •  To expose students to the practice of primary care medicine in a variety of underserved locations during their didactic and clinical training. The OU-TU School of Community Medicine PA program desires that a significant portion of their graduates will choose to work in these communities following graduation.
  •  To encourage the students, graduates, and faculty to participate in service and leadership roles within the University, the profession, and the broader community. With the strong support of the college and university administration, the OU-TU School of Community Medicine PA program is committed to fostering the growth and development of each individual student and faculty member to his/her greatest potential.
