Contact Deborah Budash, PhD, OTR/L, Director of the MMS Program, if you are an accredited PA program and wish to pursue a collaborative agreement with Saint Francis University to provide your students with a means to obtain a MMS degree concurrently with their PA training.
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. The MMS Program partners with seven 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.
Consistent with the Franciscan tradition, the MMS Program encourages students to identify and address service needs, utilizing an evidence-based approach, while capitalizing on the student’s clinical competence. This unique strategy prepares graduates to creatively and effectively respond to complex practice issues, both now and in the future.
