The Foundation for Whole-Person Care
Our program connects students with seasoned physician assistant instructors, who help translate classroom foundation into real patient care.
Bring Healing to Where You Work
Physician assistants are trusted and knowledgeable health professionals, who bring clinical expertise to patients across medical specialties. They are committed to patients and demonstrate invaluable support for physicians.
Graduates from physician assistant studies can take their talents to any area of medicine they choose. Physician assistants practice in hospitals, working in emergency rooms and specialty clinics. They showcase their skills in medical spas, providing aesthetic care. Others partner with a family practice physician, where the physician assistant acts as a problem-solver and trusted companion, seeing patients for a wide range of needs.
Our physician assistant students undergo extensive training that solidifies their understanding of medicine and teaches them to extend the healing ministry of Christ throughout their care. At AdventHealth University, physician assistant students learn care that heals the whole person. Students participate in a robust curriculum that puts them in direct contact with real patients, under the tutelage of physicians and physician assistant instructors.
