Creighton to Launch New Physician Assistant Program

Creighton plans to offer a new, 28-month Master of Physician Assist­ant Studies (MPAS) program beginning in August 2019, pending successful accreditation. Applications will be accepted starting in April 2018.

With the job market for physician assistants booming and demand looking only to strengthen, director Stephane VanderMeulen, an associate professor in the School of Medicine, says the new program comes to the right place, at the right time.

“At Creighton, you learn much more than just the practice of medicine,” she says. “If you are driven by the call to serve others and to positively impact the lives of patients, our program will be a perfect fit.”
