physician assistant students

The Salus Physician Assistant Studies program defines diversity as the unique differences between individuals from various backgrounds. We recognize and value these distinctions, and strive to admit a heterogeneous cohort of students as a means to enhance the cultural sensitivity and awareness of our students, faculty and staff for effective representation within the communities physician assistants serve.
