The Wayne State University Master of Science in Physician Assistant Studies entry level professional program is a Plan C graduate program and requires the completion of 54 credit hours of course work over two years — six consecutive semesters. The first year consists of three semesters of didactic training. Year one begins in May of each year and follows the WSU academic calendar. The second year consists of clinical rotations through a variety of disciplines. Due to clinical schedules and the needs of our patients, this year does not follow the academic calendar. To earn the Master of Science in Physician Assistant Studies, each student must successfully complete all course requirements in the proper sequence as described in the Physician Assistant program two-year curriculum.
