An Inside Look at the Boston Physician Assistant Studies Program

As a Master of Physician Assistant Studies student in our Boston, MA program, your career preparation will start in the classroom and simulation laboratory. You'll then apply this hands-on education to your clinical rotations at leading hospitals and medical centers in the Greater Boston area.

“We train physician assistants here to be ready to practice medicine the moment they graduate, so we use simulation as much as possible,” says Associate Professor Christopher Cooper, MPAS, PA-C. “We have mannequins and equipment that simulate the environment that students are actually going to be in, and because we control the environment, we can also introduce specific changes to prepare them for the unexpected."
