Massachusetts Physician Assistant Programs

Massachusetts Physician Assistant Programs provide the classroom instruction and hands-on training required to be a Physician Assistant. Working under the supervision of physicians or surgeons, physician assistants are playing an increasingly important role in the U.S. healthcare delivery system. With demographic and technological trends spurring continued demand growth for healthcare services, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics projects the Physician Assistant profession to be one of the fastest growing occupations through 2024 (Data). To practice as a Physician Assistant, professional licensure requirements in all states include entry level training from an accredited physician assistant program.

The curricula at Massachusetts Physician Assistant Programs includes pathology, human anatomy, physiology, clinical pharmacology, clinical medicine, geriatric care, disease prevention, and related medical sciences. Massachusetts Physician Assistant Programs then augment this classroom instruction in medical sciences with supervised clinical training in several areas, including internal medicine, family medicine, surgery, gynecology, geriatrics, emergency medicine, psychiatry, and pediatrics, among others. Most applicants to Physician Assistant Programs in Massachusetts have a prior bachelorís degree and some healthcare-related work experience, often times as registered nurses, emergency medical technicians (EMTs), or paramedics. Nevertheless, admissions requirements vary from program to program, so interested applicants need to check specific Massachusetts Physician Assistant Programs for their respective admission requirements.
