A rewarding career with booming employment opportunities.

There has never been a better time to pursue your career as a physician assistant (PA): an advanced medical practitioner who works on teams with physicians, surgeons, and other healthcare workers. PAs are able to perform many of the same duties as a Doctor of Medicine but with less school time.

The two-year Physician Assistant graduate program at Presbyterian College is building the next
generation of knowledgeable, caring medical leaders.

We offer a comprehensive mix of classroom learning, lab work, clinical experience, and service-based community involvement. With low student-to-teacher ratios, our faculty really gets to know each student, helping them gain a deeper understanding of coursework and career options. Our small cohorts give students the opportunity to truly connect with their classmates who will soon become their
medical colleagues.

At the end of year two, PA students can take the Physician Assistant National Certifying Examination® (PANCE) for certification.


Become a Servant Leader. We take our motto, “While We Live, We Serve,” to heart. PC students serve within the Clinton community and go on to make a lasting impact nationwide.

  • Work with Passionate Faculty. With low student-faculty ratios (11:1), our experienced instructors pride themselves on their accessibility to students, both in and outside the classroom.
  • Join a Small, Collaborative Cohort. With a cohort of 36 students, you’ll collaborate easily and build strong relationships.
  • Access Top-notch Technology. Students gain experience using cutting-edge equipment and lab space.
