Leadership Tracks and Capstone Projects

Fostering Leadership Potential

The Master of Science Degree in Physician Assistant Studies Program desires to develop exceptional clinical PAs and future PA leaders. Beyond the core curriculum and clerkships, students are required to select a leadership track and complete a Capstone project.  The leadership tracks are intended to foster leadership potential in each student in one of five domains.  The leadership tracks include Community Health, Health Services and Policy Research, Clinical Research, Medical Education, and Healthcare Administration.

Students will be required to complete a minimum of 6 credits in their selected area and complete a Capstone Project.
