Message from the Program Director
On behalf of the South College – Nashville Physician Assistant program faculty and staff, allow me to welcome you to our website. Let me begin by saying ‘Thank You’ for considering us for your Physician Assistant education. We value your interest and your trust.
Our PA Program team, consisting of experienced Physician Assistants, a Family Medicine physician, a pharmacist, an experienced simulation coordinator, health science educators, and inter-professional collaborators, has devoted much time and attention to the development of a PA program that is rooted in sound biomedical concepts and compassionate clinical practice.
Within its Nashville campus, South College has initiated its second graduate-level Physician Assistant educational program. The program will grant a Master of Health Science in Physician Assistant Studies (MHScPAS) degree. The PA Program will deliver a rigorous and robust curriculum, one that will prepare graduates for success when taking the Physician Assistant National Certification Examination (PANCE). More importantly, in alignment with the program’s mission statement, the curriculum and all associated requirements have been designed to transform students into “…competent, compassionate and comprehensive” Physician Assistants.
The MHScPAS degree will require successful completion of a transformative 27-month medical education curriculum. The curriculum is composed of 27 didactic year courses and 8 clinical year (supervised clinical practice experience) courses.
I would like to extend our best wishes for your success as you endeavor to become a Physician Assistant. If you have any questions after reviewing our web site, please feel free to contact us by calling 629-802-3057.
