SFU Physician Assistant Science on Facebook
Our Mission: To educate individuals as physician assistants to provide competent, compassionate and comprehensive health care to people and communities in need, as expressed through the Franciscan tradition.
Our Vision for you is to:
To succeed in becoming a physician assistant, be ready to work hard (develop a strong work ethic) and be willing to devote the majority of your time to your academic studies, especially in the “PA coursework-only” (last two) years for five-year students.
For the five-year student, you will have plenty of time in the first three years to take advantage of all the opportunities that SFU has to offer, such as sports, study abroad, community service. Your schedule will be flexible enough for you to enjoy the entire college experience.
During the “PA coursework-only” years of the Program, you will be immersed in medicine. In the first year of this phase you will participate in a variety of half-day clinical experiences, such as the operating room, emergency room, a rehabilitation center or an ophthalmology office. Some students have actually been able to first-assist in a surgery at the half-day experiences. During the second year students may have the opportunity to complete rotations throughout the United States, as well as internationally.
