Department Chair & Program Director’s Message

Welcome to the Department of Physician Assistant Studies website!

West Liberty University began its Master of Science in Physician Assistant Studies (MSPAS) program in July 2012. Students accepted into the program will attend classes in a quiet, safe and beautiful campus with new and fully equipped classrooms and labs. The program has also partnered with local hospitals and clinics that have a close relationship with the institution to provide clinical experiences. The program’s aim is to provide a high quality education at an affordable cost and at the same time graduate highly trained Physician Assistant students who will fill a much needed role in the continuum of patient care as part of an inter-professional team.

The website contains important information concerning prerequisites, the application process, financial aid, program costs, graduation requirements, certain policies, the curriculum, physician assistant practice, and useful links. We hope your questions will be answered as you explore the website. Be sure to contact us if your questions have not been answered.

Thank you for your interest in our program and we look forward to hearing from you.
