Physician Assistant Program

Todd Wills MD

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

Our program is an intensive 24-month program which prepares graduates to practice patient-centered, evidence-based medicine in the rapidly changing healthcare environment of the 21st century.

The USF PA program is an integral part of USF Health, an interprofessional health education center where PA students, and other students in the colleges of Medicine, Nursing, and Pharmacy learn to succeed as part of interdisciplinary health care teams.

Our faculty help students to navigate a rigorous curriculum which carefully blends sophisticated instruction in biomedical sciences with problem-based, clinically focused small group learning.

The clinical training sites for the USF PA program include state of the art facilities throughout Tampa Bay, including Tampa General Hospital, H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center, and the James A. Haley VA Medical Center. These venues provide students exposure a diversity of patients and clinical specialties while working with preceptors of exceptional skill.

I encourage prospective and qualified students to explore our innovative curriculum and application details. Reach out to us at paprogram@usf.edu with any questions.
