Measurability is the soul of science. By all standards, DeSales’ Master of Science in Physician Assistant Studies (MSPAS) program resides at the highest echelon in the American health care delivery system.

Our graduation rate exceeds both the regional and national averages. We are committed to helping our students be successful, both as students and as clinicians.

Two avenues of entry into the program are possible: 

  • Directly from high school
    Students entering from high school study three years as a Medical Studies major and subsequently enter the PA Program.

  • Following graduation from a college or university

The PA Program's graduate curriculum is 24 months in length. The first 12 months of the program emphasize didactic instruction, while the clinical year consists of nine, five-week rotations.

The DeSales Free Clinic at the Allentown Rescue Mission

The DeSales Free Clinic at the Allentown Rescue Mission opened in January 2007 in an effort to bring healthcare to the homeless. The clinic is staffed by DeSales students and faculty and has treated more than 900 patients since it opened. No patient is ever turned away or charged for services, and the operation is run entirely on donations. 

Physician Assistant students: to receive full consideration for the next academic year, your CASPA application must be submitted no later than January 15.
