Touro College School of Health Sciences Physician Assistant Program/Manhattan
The Touro College School of Health Sciences has been educating and training Physician Assistants since 1972. It has a rich history of producing skilled healthcare providers to serve the medical needs of the community. Building on years of experience in PA education, and seeking to expand access to educational opportunities, the Manhattan Campus Physician Assistant Program was established in 1999 as a bachelor's level training program with a unique, non-traditional format. Beginning in Fall 2008, the Manhattan Campus PA Program transitioned from a bachelor's program to a dual-degree, graduate program culminating in a BS in Health Sciences and MS in Physician Assistant Studies, phasing out the original program.
The BS/MS PA Program supports the Touro College institutional mission to provide educational and professional opportunities, to foster access to underserved populations, and to contribute to the building of a better society for all through these educational opportunities. In addition, the BS/MS PA Program supports the institutional mission and goals of promoting academic and scholarly achievement, while fostering the ethical and humanistic values of the Judaic tradition.
