For the third year in a row, the physician assistant program is staying perfect on the PANCE. 

The class of 2019, made up of 78 students, achieved a 100 percent first-time pass rate on the Physician Assistant National Certifying Examination. The national average was 93 percent. 

“I want to congratulate all our students for their hard work over the last two years to achieve this outcome. I also want to thank the faculty for their dedication to the students. This result translates to the superior patient care for which our graduates are known.”

 Dr. Wayne Stuart, head of the Division of Healthcare and director of the PA program

PANCE is the only exam given to graduating physician assistants and it must be passed in order to be eligible for licensure in all 50 states.
