Physician Assistant Program

Welcome to the University of South Florida Morsani College of Medicine Physician Assistant Program.

Our program is an intensive 24-month program designed to prepare graduates for careers as Physician Assistants in the dynamic healthcare field of the 21st century.

I encourage prospective students to explore our website to learn about our program’s patient-focused curriculum. We train students to excel in their unique role as PAs while fostering the inter-professional teamwork which is at the heart of the USF Health mission.
