The UofSC School of Medicine Physician Assistant (PA) Program has been granted Accreditation-Provisional status from the Accreditation Review Commission on Education for the Physician Assistant.

Physician assistants examine, diagnose and treat patients under the supervision of a licensed physician, and are able to provide a broad range of diagnostic, therapeutic, preventive and health maintenance services.

SOM PA program graduates will be prepared to deliver high quality, team-based and patient-centered health care to rural and medically-underserved areas across South Carolina and the nation.

The program’s first 20 students are expected to begin classes in January 2017.
