Master of Physician Assistant Studies
LEGACY OF EXCELLENCE
The physician assistant (PA) program at Kettering College is the school's first on-campus master's degree, accredited as such in 2006, however the department has been educating top-flight PAs since it began in 1973. One of six PA programs in the state, Kettering College's physician assistant program is currently the only one in southwest Ohio.
Educated in a Christian atmosphere that emphasizes whole-person care, Kettering College's PA students are guided by a professional faculty dedicated to constantly improving the preparation of physician assistants. Through Kettering College's affiliation with the Kettering Health Network, our PA students are provided the unique opportunity to experience the clinical portion of their education at facilities within one of the most nationally recognized hospital networks.
JUMP RIGHT IN
Whether you're a high school student exploring your health care career options, or you're a college graduate seeking a career change, Kettering College's PA program can work for you. Through Kettering College's bachelor's degree in human biology, non-degree holders can take the necessary prerequisite courses both to earn an undergraduate degree and to advance seamlessly into Kettering's Master of Physician Assistant Studies.
