The Physician Assistant (PA) program at Wichita State University is the only one of its kind in Kansas. It prepares students to practice medicine with the supervision of a licensed physician.
One of the key advantages of attending Wichita State is our location in Kansas' major medical and metropolitan center.
A successful student will demonstrate critical thinking abilities, sound judgment, exemplify medical ethics and utilize interpersonal skills. An attitude of respect for self and others, adherence to the concepts of privilege and confidentiality, and a commitment to patient welfare are essential attributes for students to demonstrate.
The ARC-PA has granted Continued Accreditation to the Physician Assistant Program sponsored by Wichita State University. Continued accreditation is an accreditation status granted when a currently accredited program is in compliance with the ARC-PA Standards.
Continued Accreditation remains in effect until the program closes or withdraws from the accreditation process or until accreditation is withdrawn for failure to comply with the Standards. The approximate date for the next comprehensive review of the program by the ARC-PA will be March 2018.
