The MPAS curriculum is sequenced and designed to address and integrate the entrustable professional activities (EPA) in which are contained the competencies the student must achieve to successfully enter the profession upon graduation. In the first two semesters (Didactic Phase) the learner will move from foundational concepts to clinically oriented content. The subsequent five semesters (Clinical Phase) are dedicated to advancing the student to the level of “competent” for all thirteen EPAs. This is achieved through supervised clinical practice experiences (SCPEs) and clinical seminars. Upon successful completion of the program, the student will be prepared to enter the physician assistant profession, obtain national certification, gain state licensure, and provide clinically competent and compassionate care as part of a collaborative patient-centered team.
