Director’s Message

Welcome to the UAMS Physician Assistant Program’s official website.  The website contains a lot of information about our program and our requirements.  We offer several unique educational opportunities in our program including small class sizes, actual patient encounters by the 5th week of the program, and our weekly small-group case-based course that occurs for three semesters.  The program really tries to emphasize what we feel is important to being a good medical provider such as patient-centered medicine, cultural awareness and knowledge, clinical application of knowledge, critical thinking skills, evidence-based medicine, and inter-professional education. We are really excited about what we have created here, so please take some time and explore the website.  Thank you for your interest in the program!
