Contact Person: JASON A. KOONTZ, Associate Professor Co-Chair B.S., Iowa State; M.S., Miami University (Ohio); Ph.D., Washington State Students interested in attending a program to become a physician assistant following graduation from Augustana take an undergraduate course of study with a major in an area of their choice. They also complete a pre-physician assistant curriculum involving courses in biology, chemistry, physics, psychology and speech. Pre-physician assistant students may also participate in internships with clinical experience during the school year at various hospitals and clinics in the Quad-City area in order to obtain some of the clinical experience necessary for successful competition for admission into professional physician assistant programs. All professional schools require a significant number of clinical hours (i.e. direct patient care); most require a minimum of 1,000 hours. Becoming a Certified Nursing Assistant or Emergency Medical Technician is strongly recommended. Interested students should consult with the advisor early in their first year to plan an appropriate schedule of studies.
