Mayo Clinic advances PA program at health sciences school

Rochester, Minn.-based Mayo Clinic's new master's degree program for physician assistants at the Mayo Clinic School of Health Sciences received initial accreditation approval from the Higher Learning Commission.

The two-year program leads to a Master of Health Sciences in PA studies. The program includes courses and labs held at the Cascade Meadow facility in Rochester for Saint Mary's University of Minnesota and hands-on clinical experiences at Mayo Clinic.

The second year of the curriculum involves clinical rotations at Mayo Clinic's hospitals and clinics in southern Minnesota, western Wisconsin and northern Iowa.

"Innovative educational collaborations will play an essential role in creating the highest-quality, patient-centered care," said Fredric Meyer, MD, executive dean of education for Mayo Clinic. "We are committed to developing educational pathways for students that empower them to meet the needs of area patients."
