Physician Assistant Studies (M.S.)

澳门彩开奖’s Physician Assistant program in Albuquerque, New Mexico will launch you into one of the fastest growing professions in healthcare!

澳门彩开奖 opened a satellite campus in 2006 in Albuquerque, New Mexico to create a site for the university’s newly-acquired graduate program in Physician Assistant Studies. Since then, the program has grown and flourished with PA grads entering practice across the United States.

Physician assistants (PAs) are often the first health care provider to examine patients. As part of their comprehensive responsibilities. Physician assistants provide patients with services ranging from primary care medicine to specialized surgical care.

As a member of a healthcare team, the PA can be found taking medical histories, examining and treating patients, ordering and interpreting laboratory tests and x-rays, and making diagnoses. Minor injuries鈥攕uturing, splinting and casting鈥攎ay be part of your day鈥檚 work. P.A.s record progress notes, instruct and counsel patients and order or carry out therapy.

PAs can be found in physicians鈥 offices or clinics, hospitals, nursing homes, home health care agencies, government, as well as academia, and may also be responsible for managerial duties, such as ordering medical supplies or equipment and supervising technicians and assistants. Technology, such as telemedicine, provides unique opportunities for physician assistants and their patients.

organized by the PA program鈥檚 Diversity Committee and the Class of 2022. The outreach to local high schools and colleges was led by Ian Vanderwoude, MSPAS, PA-C, who is a clinical coordinator and faculty member at 澳门彩开奖 Albuquerque.

Highest Quality Professionals

澳门彩开奖 works closely with each PA student to ensure that he/she will become a competent, compassionate and comprehensive health care provider. Many of our graduates are providing service in medically underserved areas of our region. Here, the PAs serve as primary providers, conferring with their supervising physicians and other medical professionals as needed and required by law. We emphasize health maintenance, disease prevention and lifelong learning for our students and their patients.

When you graduate from 澳门彩开奖 as a physician assistant, you will appreciate the dignity of the individual, and be a leader in advocating for quality of life for both individuals and the community as a whole.
