Physician Assistant Practice Program
The College of Health Sciences and Professions offers a master’s degree in Physician Assistant Practice (MPAP) at the University’s Dublin Integrated Education Center in Dublin, Ohio. The seven-semester, 27-month program is designed to prepare students to work in any clinical setting, with an emphasis on primary care in urban and rural medically underserved communities in Ohio and throughout Appalachia.
The Ohio University Physician Assistant program has Accreditated – Provisional status from the Accreditation Review Commission on Education for the Physician Assistant (ARC-PA). Accreditation-Provisional is an accreditation status for a new PA program that has not yet enrolled and/or graduated students, but at the time of its initial accreditation review has demonstrated its preparedness to initiate a program in accordance with the accreditation standards. We matriculated our first PA cohort in May 2015.
