Physician Assistants are health care professionals licensed to practice medicine in collaboration with all members of the healthcare team. Physician Assistants conduct histories, physical exams, order and interpret tests, diagnose, treat illnesses, provide counsel on preventive health care, assist in surgery, and write prescriptions. In addition, PAs also participate in education, research, and leadership services.
The Miami-Dade Physician Assistant Program is on the cutting edge to address
the workforce needs in Miami Dade County and around the world. The program is preparing students to become highly skilled healthcare professionals, while
improving their quality of life. The PA program continues to meet its mission by graduating physician assistants who return to serve the community. The program participates in a migrant program and other community service projects.
The mission of the Miami Dade Physician Assistant Program is to educate and train students from a culturally diverse background to become competent primary care physician assistants who will serve the medically underserved patients in urban and rural communities in Florida.
