About the OHSU School of Medicine Physician Assistant Program

The OHSU School of Medicine Physician Assistant Program was established in 1995 with the mission of preparing physician assistants to provide primary care services to rural and urban medically underserved communities. Students’ experiences include required rotations in primary care, women’s health, pediatrics, emergency medicine, general surgery, inpatient medicine and orthopedics. The capstone clinical experience is a 10-week primary care preceptorship. During the clinical phase of their education, as part of the requirement for their degree, students complete a health promotion/disease prevention project designed to meet an identifiable health care need in the community.
