Physician Assistant Program

Welcome to the University of South Florida Morsani College of Medicine Physician Assistant Program. Our program is applying for Accreditation - Provisional through the Accreditation Review Commission on Education for the Physician Assistant (ARC-PA).

The program will be 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 will 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.

Prospective students should carefully review our program’s prerequisite courses and admission requirements.

Thanks for your interest in our program and check back frequently for updates.

Accreditation Information

USF Morsani College of Medicine Physician Assistant Program has applied for Accreditation - Provisional from the Accreditation Review Commission on Education for the Physician Assistant (ARC-PA). The Program anticipates matriculating its first class in May 2017, pending achieving Accreditation - Provisional status at the September 2016 ARC-PA meeting. "Accreditation - Provisional" is an accreditation status granted when the plans and resource allocation, if fully implemented as planned, of a proposed program that has not yet enrolled students appear to demonstrate the program's ability to meet the ARC-PA Standards or when a program holding Accreditation - Provisional status appears to demonstrate continued progress in complying with the Standards as it prepares for the graduation of the first class (cohort) of students. If the USF MCOM PA Program is not granted provisional accreditation by the ARC-PA the university will not accept or review any applications nor will it enroll students in the program.
