The Master of Science in Physician Assistant Studies at Westfield State University is the only public physician assistant program in Massachusetts and all of New England. The Westfield State University Physician Assistant Program intends to educate a diverse student body of highly skilled and culturally aware healthcare providers who will utilize a patient-centered care approach and be committed to serving the public, either in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts or beyond. To help achieve this goal, the program will grant an interview for all students who have graduated from a Massachusetts public four-year institution, if the following criteria are met.
An applicant with a baccalaureate degree from a Massachusetts public institution who does not meet these requirements, but meets the general admission requirements of the program may apply and will be considered with all other applicants.
