PA Class of 2019 Commencement
The School of Physician Assistant Practice at the Florida State University College of Medicine will graduate its inaugural class of 37 students on Saturday, Dec. 14. Elyse Watkins, DHSc., associate professor at the University of Lynchburg, will be the featured speaker.
The PA school opened its doors in August 2017 and has grown to a current enrollment of 150. Its first class spent the final year of the 27-month program working directly with physician-faculty members and their patients at one of the College of Medicine’s six regional campuses.
PA students will graduate with a Master of Science in Physician Assistant Practice, becoming eligible to sit for the Physician Assistant National Certifying Exam and apply for state licensure to begin practice. Some students may also seek out fellowships or specialized training.
