Members of the Florida State University College of Medicine’s third physician assistant class will receive white coats this week in a traditional ceremony symbolizing professional competence and compassion.
In 2018, the college’s School of Physician Assistant Practice welcomed its first class of 40 PA students. This year’s class comprises 59 students.
Physician assistants provide another layer of primary-care providers capable of strengthening the College of Medicine’s commitment to improving access to care in Florida and beyond. They work as part of a health-care team under a physician’s supervision. Students in the FSU PA program spend 27 months learning within the same network of faculty physicians who teach FSU medical students.
The ceremony will take place:
