EMU's physician assistant program is dedicated to teaching students the science and art of medicine. Our clinically-focused curriculum will promote critical thinking and patient-centered problem-solving. We are committed to producing graduates who will master the skills required to competently and compassionately practice preventive and diagnostic medicine, and foster the interpersonal and collaborative attributes necessary to become exemplary medical providers.
There is high demand for the physician assistant (PA) profession, as physician assistants (PAs) help to fill the gap in a projected shortage of primary care physicians and can practice in virtually any medical specialty. The EMU PA program facilitates students in developing critical thinking and patient-centered problem-solving skills with a practical focus to prepare them for the experiences they will encounter upon graduation. Your gift to the PA Scholarship Fund will help PA students achieve their educational goals of becoming certified and licensed to practice medicine using autonomous decision-making under the supervision of a physician.
"The EMU PA scholarship really helped me during that challenging time between ending graduate school and waiting for the next job opportunity. It was a humbling example of a profession of caring people helping their own get a head start."
- Lauren Duggan, Scholarship Recipient
