Master of Physician Assistant Studies

FGCU's Master of Physician Assistant Studies Degree Prepares Medical Professionals to Provide Evidence-Based Patient-Centered Care as Part of a Collaborative Healthcare Team

Our curriculum begins with 15 months of instruction in physiology, pharmacology, anatomy, clinical medicine, clinical integration, and clinical skills on campus. The remaining 12 months are dedicated to 4-week supervised clinical rotations at healthcare sites off campus. Core clinical rotations are in primary-care medicine, internal medicine, pediatrics, behavioral health, women’s health, general surgery and emergency medicine. Three selective rotations will be arranged based upon the request of the student and the needs of the program.  Demand for physician assistants is expected to grow 27 percent from 2022 to 2032, much faster than the average for all occupations, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. With hands-on learning in state-of-the-art facilities and the individualized attention of dedicated faculty, our graduates are poised to lead this growing field. 


The CASPA portal for the next FGCU application cycle will open on August 1, 2024, for matriculation in August 2025.  Application Deadline is January 15, 2025.
