Mission and Core Values 
Physician Assistant Studies

The mission of the Physician Assistant Studies program is to educate and mentor highly qualified physician assistant students to become competent healthcare providers prepared to advance the health of diverse communities.


Educational Philosophy

PCOM Georgia PA Studies program students pose for a class photo wearing their white coats.For students to thrive in the field of medicine they must not only develop a substantial fund of knowledge, but they must acquire skills to be life-long learners. It is the goal of PCOM physician assistant program faculty to foster critical thinking and prepare students to develop the problem-solving skills they will need in clinical practice.

Using multiple modalities of instruction, students will actively engage in the material. Through small group work, problem-based learning, and practical application of information, students develop key characteristics of a future health care provider such as teamwork, communication skills and responsibility to other members of the group. The didactic and clinical curriculum of PCOM's physician assistant program will empower our graduates to be leaders in the health care community, striving for excellence in all academic and professional endeavors while helping to provide health care for those in need.
