The mission of the Online Master of Medical Science (MMS) Program is to provide students in affiliated physician assistant programs the opportunity to obtain graduate education in an affordable, flexible, online format. Upon completion of the MMS program, graduates will be able to use research to develop evidence based regimes/programs to address unmet needs and critically analyze current pharmacotherapeutics and apply to disease processes in clinical practice.
The MMS Program partners with physician assistant certification programs throughout the United States to offer an opportunity for those students to earn a master’s degree while they complete their clinical rotations. This option permits these graduates to be competitive with entry level master’s degree physician assistant practitioners.
