Physician Assistant

The Salus University Physician Assistant (PA) program is patient-centered with a primary care philosophy and holistic approach, so our students appreciate the need to not only care for the patient, but also about the patient. Our outstanding faculty is accessible and committed to the personal and professional development of our students.
