About the PA Program
The compelling purpose of Presbyterian College Physician Assistant Studies Program, as part of a church-related college, is to develop within the framework of Christian faith the medical, mental, moral, physical, and spiritual capacities of each student in preparation for a lifetime of service to our patients and those in need in our society.
In order to fulfill our mission, our top priority is the creation of an environment and opportunities that stimulate our faculty, students, and practitioners to learn, maintain, and expand upon the knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary to meet the health care needs of the patients they serve.
