About the Physician Assistant Program
The Morehouse School of Medicine (MSM) Physician Assistant (PA) program is the newest professional graduate program and comes as a response to rising health care needs across Georgia and around the world. Once established, the program will bring with it workforce diversity and increased access to care in underserved rural and urban communities across Georgia.
The MSM PA Program is a 28-month, 7-semester academic professional degree program that includes basic science and clinical coursework, clinical skills training and supervised clinical practice. The program awards a Master of Science in Medicine degree after completion of the 15-month didactic phase and 13-month clinical phase. All coursework must be completed within a 40-month period.
