Milligan hosts PA info session May 25
MILLIGAN COLLEGE, Tenn. (April 27, 2017) — Students interested in becoming a physician assistant can attend an info session at Milligan College and learn about the college’s new PA program, Thursday, May 25, 5:30-6:30 p.m. in the B.D. Phillips Building on Emmanuel Hill, room 203. The second application cycle for the January 2018 class is open now through August 1.
Prospective students will have the opportunity to get an overview of the PA program from its director, Andrew Hull, as well as other key faculty members. Hull, of Johnson City, is a 2001 alum and has a wide range of medical experience working locally as a physician assistant in areas including dermatology, family practice and emergency room medicine.
Milligan’s Master of Science in Physician Assistant Studies will be a 28-month, 108 credit hour program projected to have 60 students when fully-enrolled, 25 graduates annually, filling a much-needed gap in healthcare employment regionally and nationally. The program is slated to launch in January 2018.
“This is the perfect event for anyone interested in learning more about Milligan’s physician assistant program, which trains students to be excellent medical providers and also encourages them to be servant leaders in their communities,” said Hull.
The Milligan College Master of Science in Physician Assistant Studies program has applied for Accreditation-Provisional from the Accreditation Review Commission on Education for the Physician Assistant (ARC-PA). The Master of Science in Physician Assistant Studies program anticipates matriculating its first class in January 2018, pending achieving Accreditation-Provisional status at the September 2017 ARC-PA meeting. Accreditation-Provisional is an accreditation status granted when the plans and resource allocation, if fully implemented as planned, of a proposed program that has not yet enrolled students appears to demonstrate the program’s ability to meet the ARC-PA Standards or when a program holding Accreditation-Provisional status appears to demonstrate continued progress in complying with the Standards as it prepares for the graduation of the first class (cohort) of students.
