Department of Physician Assistant Studies

Physician assistants (PAs) are vital members of physician-directed teams, licensed to practice and prescribe medication in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. Pursuing the physician assistant program at USciences is an optimal path for students with a science aptitude who seek an exciting and challenging education to prepare for an extremely rewarding career that’s consistently named as one of the best jobs because of the salary, job prospects, low stress level, and work-life balance.

Career preparation and the opportunity to choose your own path are just two advantages our physician assistant (PA) program offer. You’ll also benefit from our legacy of distinguished pharmacy and science achievements, a new, state-of-the-art facility, and leading-edge resources, including video-capable exam rooms and a simulation lab. Our students are drawn to the vibrancy of our urban campus in the center of Philadelphia’s University City. We share library resources with Drexel and Penn—and we’re just minutes away from downtown historic Philadelphia.
