Campbell University PA Program
In October 2008, the Campbell University Board of Trustees approved the addition of a Master of Physician Assistant Program. The program was granted Provisional Accreditation in March 2011 for a maximum of 44 students. The charter class of 34 students was matriculated in August, 2011. Under the direction of Ronald Maddox, PharmD, Dean of the College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences, and Founding Program Director, Tom Colletti, MPAS, PA-C, a 28-month program was developed that would grant the Master of Physician Assistant Practice (MPAP) degree to its graduates. Founding members of the faculty included Christopher Stewart, M.D., Medical Director; David Coniglio, MPA, PA-C, academic coordinator; Laura Gerstner, MHA, MSHS, PA-C, clinical coordinator; Betty Lynne Johnson, M.Ed., PA-C; and Liza Greene, MMS, PA-C.
The program was initially housed in the renovated Carrie Rich Hall on the main campus in Buies Creek, N.C. In spring 2013 the PA program moved to the Levine Hall of Medical Science, located adjacent to the main campus. In 2013 we developed a program awarding a dual degree in Master of Physician Assistant Practice and Master of Science in Public Health (MSPH). The Campbell PA program is the only dual degree program in the North Carolina leading to a MPAP/MSPH degree. In March 2014, the program was granted Accreditation.
