Curriculum of Physician Assistant Program

The Physician Assistant Program is an upper-division baccalaureate program which can be completed in 28.5 months.

Classes begin with an Orientation Program. Students study biomedical, behavioral and clinical medicine during the first 16 months, which includes learning skills in interviewing, performing physical examinations, preparing medical documentation, and patient contact. The final 13 months consist of clinical clerkships in various New York City Health and Hospital facilities and neighborhood health care centers.
