Additional Information

Established in 1971, the Physician Assistant Program in Bouve College of Health Sciences has a long-standing history of, and expertise in, the education and training of physician assistants. The PA Program is located in close proximity to Boston’s major academic medical centers and was the first generalist PA training program in the nation to offer a master’s degree in 1985.
This rigorous, highly integrated curriculum provides our students with the broad generalist training that prepares them for successful employment in all fields of clinical practice. Our instructional faculty members are practicing clinicians from throughout New England and most have been teaching with the program for many years. The clinical year is designed to provide students with experience in diverse health care settings in our well-established network of clinical rotations sites.
The program is a full-time, 24-month graduate program that provides an opportunity to earn a Master of Science in Physician Assistant Studies. Graduates of the PA program take the PA National Certifying Examination (PANCE) after graduation. Certification is required for initial licensure/registration in all states. The pass rates for first-time takers of the Northeastern PA Program compare very favorably with the national rates. Northeastern’s PANCE scores for the previous 5 years are at the National Commission on the Certification of Physician Assistants (NCCPA).
Northeastern PA Program graduates are employed in positions across the United States and some have worked internationally. In addition to clinical practice, our graduates are employed in research, administration, and education.
