Physician Assistant Program

The Oklahoma State University Center for Health Sciences educates and trains osteopathic physicians, scientists and health care professionals, with an emphasis on providing health care for rural and underserved areas of Oklahoma.

It is the mission of the Physician Assistant Program to recruit, educate and mentor a diverse group of students to increase competent and compassionate health care with an emphasis on increasing access to health care in rural and underserved areas. 

Our vision is to educate physician assistants to become highly-skilled clinicians who make a positive impact on their patients as well as their surrounding community. 

The program also prioritizes fostering collaborative relationships between OSU-CHS’ athletic training students, medical students and physician assistant students early on in their career development so they can provide professional, flexible team-based health care. 

Ideal candidates are from underserved or rural Oklahoma who want to give back to those communities.

Oklahoma State University has applied for Accreditation – Provisional from the Accreditation Review Commission on Education for the Physician Assistant (ARC-PA). Oklahoma State University anticipates matriculating its first class in July 2021, pending achieving Accreditation – Provisional status at the March 2021 ARC-PA meeting. Accreditation – Provisional is an accreditation status granted when the plans and resource allocation, if fully implemented as planned, of a proposed program that has not yet enrolled students appear to demonstrate the program’s ability to meet the ARC-PA Standards or when the program holding accreditation-provisional status appears to demonstrate continued progress in complying with the Standards as it prepared for the graduation of the first class (cohort) of students.
