Consumer Notice

The West Coast University Master of Physician Assistant program helps prepare students to excel as clinicians and leaders by providing them with opportunities to learn and adopt practice-ready knowledge, skills, and behaviors that are patient-centered, focused on community health, and which embrace cultural humility, adaptability, and agility within the evolving, challenging, and ambiguous context of contemporary healthcare.

We help prepare professionals who will contribute to the advancement of the physician assistant profession through leading, life-long learning, and service, within and across their communities.

Program Goals

  1. Recruit enthusiastic physician assistant students from diverse backgrounds who display passion, commitment and resiliency toward healthcare delivery, tenacity for problem solving, and a robust appetite for learning, collaborating, and growing.

  3. Provide clinical training opportunities that embody the mission and vision of our program and meet the needs of our students and the healthcare community.
  4. Prepare graduates for the Physician Assistant National Certification Examination (PANCE), as the universal benchmark to begin practice, with a first-time pass rate exceeding the national average.
