PCOM offers a dynamic learning environment where students and educators constantly
interact and collaborate with one another. All full-time PA program faculty are, or have been, practicing physician assistants, and thus they bring a broad range
of perspectives and experience.
Starting early in their studies, PA students also benefit from extensive hands-on
experiences. They work with patient-actors who assume the roles of patients with specific
medical histories, train in modern medical facilities for clinical rotations, and
benefit from clinician-patient encounters in supervised clinical practice experiences.
As a result of all this training, our PA Studies program graduates are exceptionally
prepared and highly sought after. First-time pass rate for our graduates on the Physician Assistant National Certifying Exam is
exceptionally high. Our graduates are so highly valued by employers that half pursue active job leads
