Physician Assistant Education
The University of Dayton's Master of Physician Assistant Practice (MPAP) program will prepare you to become a knowledgeable, service-oriented and self-assured mid-level healthcare practitioner. Our program utilizes state-of-the-art technology blended with traditional hands-on experiences to provide our students with the best possible experience to prepare them for clinical practice.
The 27-month, seven-semester, modular-based curriculum program is located on the fifth floor of the University's Raymond L. Fitz Hall, three floors above the University's Doctor of Physical Therapy program and one floor below the other programs in the School of Education and Health Sciences.
The Physician Assistant Education Department's mission is to produce physician assistants who are committed to the service of the human person through the skillful, compassionate, and ethical provision of health care within the context of the Catholic Marianist tradition. We emphasize excellent generalist care for the whole person, particularly upholding dignity for society's most vulnerable, in a learning environment which emphasizes leadership, life-long learning, and service.
