HICKORY, N.C. — An open house session detailing Lenoir-Rhyne University’s new 3+2 Physician Assistant Program will be held this Saturday, March 29 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. in the Bears’ Lair Atrium.
High-school students are encouraged to attend the open house, highlighting the unique program, which allows students to earn a Bachelor of Science in Medical Studies and a Master of Science in Physician Assistant Studies in just five years.
As a provisionally accepted undergraduate in the BSMS program, students are guaranteed a spot in the LRU PA program, provided completion of all progression requirements while earning a bachelor degree.
The mission of LRU’s Physician Assistant Studies program is to educate primary care physician assistants; students originating from a diversity of faith, geographic, socioeconomic, and cultural backgrounds, educationally and clinically preparing them to become compassionate professionals providing quality healthcare from a holistic standpoint to populations in diverse geographic locations, and for the medically underserved in local, national, and international settings.
Lenoir-Rhyne University has applied for provisional accreditation—which is the status for a new physician assistant program that has not yet enrolled students, but at the time of its comprehensive accreditation review has demonstrated its preparedness to initiate a program in accordance with the accreditation standards from the Accreditation Review Commission on Education for the Physician Assistant.LRU News | No Comments
