George Washington University PA Program Mission Statement

The GW Physician Assistant Program focuses on preparing health professionals who will extend and complement the capabilities of physicians in the delivery of health care. Our faculty believes it is essential for all PA graduates to be well-rounded clinicians, prepared for a variety of medical careers. We offer two graduate level programs: the traditional 2 year program leading to a Master of Science in Health Sciences degree (MSHS) and the 3 year joint program leading to both an MSHS and a Master of Public Health degree (MPH). Applicants to the joint PA/MPH program must meet admission requirements for both the MSHS and MPH programs.
