Butler University PA Program Mission Statement

Butler University houses the oldest PA (physician assistant) program in the State of Indiana. Our 24-month curriculum will prepare you to be eligible to take the national certification exam, apply for state licensure, and provide patient care in various medical or surgical practice settings. We are in the heart of Indianapolis and partner with all the major healthcare systems in the state, as well as, many outside of Indiana, to offer students outstanding clinical experiences.

Butler’s program boasts above-national-average board passing rates with very low attrition. This, accompanied with a 100% job placement rate within six months of graduation, makes this one of the premier PA programs in the country.
