Physician Assistant Program  

Care for patients alongside MDs and DOs as part of the health care team in a hospital or community clinic. Learn in modern medical facilities and participate in hands-on learning, including active prosection and simulated patient experiences.

Engage in a hybrid of labs, workshops, lectures and intensive classes. You’ll have the opportunity to hone your clinical skills by training with UNM expert mentors.

As a physician assistant (PA) student, you will spend 27 months training alongside your cohort of talented peers. Nine of those months will be spent in clinical rotations, providing experience in a range of medical disciplines.

You will be awarded a Master of Science upon successful completion of the curriculum.
