MC to offer state’s first physician assistant program
CLINTON — Mississippi College plans to add a physician assistant (PA) program beginning in May, representing the first PA training program in Mississippi, according to the private, Baptist-affiliated college.
The college will learn this month if the program is accredited. Classes are set to begin May 25.
Applications for MC’s PA program are being accepted for the first class of 30 students. The deadline for applying is April 1. Tuition is about $65,000 for 141 credit hours.
Program director Robert Philpot became a PA in 1994 and went on to oversee programs in Savannah, Ga., and Tampa, Fla.
The 10,000-square-foot PA learning center, which includes mock exam rooms, a classroom, faculty offices, a control room and a break room, is on the third floor of the Baptist Healthplex.
