Physician Assistant Studies

PA Program Manual


Introduction

UT PA studentsThis prospectus is designed to provide the potential student and matriculated student with information about the Master of Science in Biomedical Sciences, Physician Assistant Program. For current students, it should be viewed as an adjunct to The University of Toledo's College of Graduate Studies Bulletin and the College of Graduate Studies Handbook, both of which contain specific information regarding the College of Graduate Studies and related policies. The information herein is subject to periodic revision and these changes will be relayed to current students in a timely manner. It is ultimately the student's responsibility to be aware of all degree requirements and to work closely with an advisor to ensure that these requirements are fulfilled.

Overview of the Profession and Program

Physician Assistants (PAs) are health professionals, prepared to practice medicine with physician supervision. Within the physician/PA relationship, PAs exercise autonomy in decision-making and provide a wide range of diagnostic and therapeutic services. The role of the PA includes provision of primary and specialty care in medical and surgical practices located in rural, urban or suburban areas. Physician assistant practice is patient care centered but may include education, research and administrative duties.

The University of Toledo (UT) Physician Assistant Program is a graduate entry-level professional course of study enabling individuals who hold baccalaureate degrees to become PAs. The program is designed to prepare graduates for primary care practice with emphasis placed on both service to medically under served populations and the team approach to the delivery of health care. The program integrates graduate level critical thinking and analysis, problem solving, scientific inquiry, self-directed learning and the effective use of modern technology for professional practice that includes elements of research, leadership, education and continued professionalization of the physician assistant occupation.

Program gOALS AND Outcomes

Goal 1

Prepare students to manage critically ill patients, trauma patients, surgical patients, and patients in labor and delivery with efficiency, competence and confidence.

OUTCOME: There have been 131 Physician Assistant graduates that have participated in advanced, hands on, patient training exercises and successfully met all evaluation criteria at the University of Toledo's Interprofessional Immersive Simulation Center (IISC), The IISC provides a virtual hospital experience, and includes an ICU, Trauma Suite, OB & Delivery Suite, Operating Room, patient care rooms, clinical skills area, and ultrasound lab, all of which are equipped with human patient simulators and realistic clinical equipment and medical scenarios. (http://www.utoledo.edu/centers/iisc/clinical-simulation/).

Goal 2

Recruit students to the program from ethnic/cultural backgrounds that are typically underrepresented in healthcare professions.

OUTCOME: The program has consistently each academic year admitted a diverse class that includes medically underrepresented students, veterans and first generation college.  As a result of the Program's admissions philosophy, the PA Program received the Physician Assistant Education Association (PAEA) 2011 National Diversity Award for their consistent ability to admit a diverse class of students.  The PA Program has continued to admit a diverse class of students that identified as one of the medically underrepresented groups as well as veterans and first generation college.

  • 2012 – 20% of admitted students
  • 2013 – 24% of admitted students
  • 2014 - 29% of admitted students
  • 2015 – 47% of admitted students
  • 2016 – 23% of admitted students
  • 2017 – 50% of admitted students

Goal 3

Prepare our students to critically read and interpret current medical literature, appreciate the process of scientific inquiry, and to become future researchers and scholars, as well as clinicians.

OUTCOME: 100% of UT's PA program graduates have completed a Master's scholarly project, which requires them to design, formulate and present a research/review paper in their culminating year. The topic must be relevant to the PA profession, and requires developing peer reviewed literature searching and academic writing skills.

View our Scholarly Project Manual

Goal 4

Prepare our students to work collaboratively and in a spirit of teamwork with healthcare professionals from a variety of disciplines.

OUTCOME: 100% of UT’s PA students have participated in Interprofessional teamwork since the inception of the first class admitted in 1996.  The PA students have participated in interprofessional training education and successfully met all evaluation criteria for the course.  In addition to the early interprofessional education that focused on clinical decision making, the current education is conducted in the University of Toledo's Interprofessional Immersive Simulation Center (IISC). These interactive training sessions are conducted using teams comprised of PA, nursing, pharmacy, medical, physical therapy, occupational therapy, respiratory, public health, speech language therapy, clinical psychology and social work students, which include simulations in the Interprofessional Immersive Simulation Center (IISC), clinical skills training, and small group exercises.

Goal 5

Provide our students exposure to/experience in providing patient care to medically underserved patients and patients of lower socioeconomic status in an urban environment as well as medical missions.

OUTCOME: The Community Care Clinics (CCC) is an interdisciplinary, student-run organization established to deliver quality health care to the underserved populations in the Toledo Community. The PA students (>80% of the class) beginning in their second semester through their second year have volunteered (with clinician supervision) at several free clinics in the Toledo area in the didactic phase of the program. The students participate in a variety of fundraising activities to help support these free clinics. Additionally, the students also provide medical screenings such as blood pressure, glucose and hearing screenings at ethnic neighborhood events, festivals.  The College of Medicine offers and participates in medical mission teams with the Global Health Program. For example, students participated in the Nicaragua Medical Mission Trip in the summer of 2016. 

Goal 6

Provide our students with a comprehensive foundation in the basic sciences upon which they will build their clinical knowledge and skills in clinical medicine.

OUTCOME: 100% of our students have successfully completed higher level, rigorous courses in anatomy and physiology in the first semester of the program.  These courses are taught by PhDs in their respective disciplines comparable to those courses that are taught to first year medical students.

Curriculum Design

The curriculum design is based upon the concepts of adult-centered learning and professional education which focus on mastery of knowledge, skills and attitudes required by the graduate to practice effectively as a physician assistant. The curriculum, offered in didactic and experiential components, is an approach which moves from basic to more advanced skills. The curriculum design assumes that students will develop the necessary skills to be self-directed learners and to apply effectively what they learn in the clinical setting.

Program Delivery Model

The Physician Assistant Program is offered on a full-time basis only.  Length of the program is seven consecutive semesters (27 months). The credit load ranges from 7 to 15 hours per semester. Learners are expected to adjust their non-curricular demands in order to complete the degree requirements. As adult learners, it is expected that students will actively engage in independent study, inquiry and fieldwork outside the classroom to augment learning and to maximize effectiveness of classroom and laboratory contact time. Students will be expected to successfully complete and present a scholarly project (abstracts for previous scholarly projects are available for review), an Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE), and a comprehensive written examination in order to graduate from the PA program.

Since the PA Program will use computer technology in the delivery of the curriculum, all PA students must be computer literate. The ability to use the computer for research and the exchange of campus e-mail will be expected.

It is not recommended that any learner attempt to attend the Physician Assistant Program while continuing full-time employment.

Students must not substitute for or function as instructional faculty, must not be required to work for the program or substitute for clinical or administrative staff during supervised clinical practical experiences.

Clinical Year
The Clinical Year consists of 4 didactic weeks and 40 weeks of required clinical rotations. The didactic time which occurs at the beginning of the spring semester of the second year is divided into two weeks of Research Practicum and two weeks of Introduction to Clinical Practice. Each student will then complete all of the following four week clinical rotations: Emergency Medicine, Family Medicine, Pediatrics, Internal Medicine, Surgery, GYN/Prenatal, Behavioral/Geriatrics and an Elective. The Elective rotation can be in the student's preferred specialty of medical practice. Following the clinical rotations, each student will complete an eight week intensive Preceptorship in Primary Care Medicine. Each student is responsible for his or her transportation to and from the clinical sites, which may be up to 70 miles away from campus.

    • Candidates may instead choose to take and pass a Medical Terminology test offered by the UT PA Program prior to   matriculation. The test is taken at UT in the PA department. Candidates who choose to take the proficiency test and who do not pass the test, will be required to participate in a self-study program and retest or satisfactorily complete a medical terminology course at an accredited college or university prior to enrollment in the UTPA program.

AP (Advanced Placement) or CLEP credits are not acceptable.

All prerequisite coursework identified above must be current within eight (8) years of admission to the program. For those who apply for entrance into the UT PA Program, all prerequisite coursework must have been completed eight years prior to enrollment in the fall of that particular year (with a one week extension for completion of the first summer semester for prerequisite courses). For example, a student admitted for the PA class starting in Fall 2018 must have completed all prerequisites between Fall 2010 and June 15, 2018.

All prerequisites must be completed with a grade of "B-" or higher. For courses where separate grades are assigned for lecture and laboratory sections, the candidate must receive a grade of "B-" or higher for BOTH the lecture and lab.

For applicants enrolled at institutions that use a QUARTER system, credit hours are converted such that five (5) quarter hours = three (3) semester hours.

For applicants enrolled at institutions that use a combined letter grading scale (such as "AB" or "BC"), the only accepted grades are "A", "AB", or "B". Receiving a grade of "BC" does not meet the minimum grade requirement.

For applicants enrolled at institutions that utilize a point system for course grades, a 3.0 or higher is acceptable. Any grade lower than 3.0 is not acceptable.

Preference will be given to applicants who at any time have earned a "B-" or higher in any of the following additional advanced healthcare and science-related undergraduate or graduate courses, including but not limited to: anatomy, physiology, chemistry, biochemistry, genetics, microbiology, immunology, physics, psychology, pathophysiology, pharmacology, endocrinology or mathematics.

Formal healthcare experience, shadowing of PAs or other healthcare providers, or patient contact hours are not required, but is an attribute.  The Program does not designate a specific number of hours.

Prior to matriculation, candidates must present evidence that they are currently trained in basic cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) according to American Heart Association standards. This training must be maintained throughout the program of study.

The University of Toledo College of Medicine and Life Sciences value added groups (current Ohio residents, graduates of The University of Toledo, non-traditional, underrepresented in medicine and those who are veterans) are given some degree of preference.

The UT PA Program does not provide advanced placement or advanced standing for any students.

Admission Selection Process 

Candidates for interviews will be selected from those with completed applications (both CASPA and UT PA Supplemental Application and Prerequisite Form) who meet the minimum entrance requirements and have completed or have a plan to complete all prerequisites by June 15 of the enrollment year.  Students selected for interviews are typically notified in December. 

Interviews typically occur in January thru March. Candidates are notified of acceptance in April.

The selection process is highly competitive and merely meeting minimum entrance requirements does not guarantee an interview or admission to the program.  Normally the UT PA class that enters in August began with over 1000 applicants and slightly over 260 interviews for 40 entering students. There are many factors involved in the selection process, including but not limited to cumulative undergraduate (or completed graduate) grade point average, cumulative science grade point average, personal experiences, writing sample, reference letters, familiarity with the PA profession and the University, oral communication skills, professionalism, problem solving and teamwork. 

Based upon a point scoring system with holistic consideration of each candidate, the Admissions Committee may recommend one of the following:

  • Acceptance: Candidates with the highest scores (based upon the candidate's completed CASPA application and interviews) will be recommended to the UT College of Graduate Studies for acceptance. The number of candidates recommended for acceptance will be determined annually by the PA Program class size. For the academic year starting in August, the program expects to accept 40 students. Following interviews, candidates are informed of acceptance in March. An applicant may be receive Conditional Status, as described below.
  • Alternate/Waiting List: Individuals who interviewed but did not receive an offer of a seat in the class will be placed on an alternates list until the class is filled.  Candidates not admitted from the alternate list must reapply if they wish to be considered for the following year.  Immediately following interviews, and the initial selection, candidates are placed on the alternate list and subsequently selected when a seat is declined.  This will occur beginning  in March and usually will end by the end of June. 
  • Non-Acceptance: Candidates not accepted will be notified via email. Candidates who are not accepted are informed at the end of the selection of candidates beginning July 1st.  Candidates wishing to be considered for the following year must reapply.

Admission Under "Conditional" Status

An applicant must complete the general admission requirements specified above. Circumstances which may result in a Conditional Status admission include:
>  An applicant with a Bachelor's degree in progress must be completed by June 15th. An official transcript with the degree posted must be received prior to matriculation into the program. 
>  An applicant with an undergraduate cumulative grade point average (GPA) less than 3.0 (GPA of 2.99 - 2.97) may be considered for admission under Conditional Status. Students must achieve a 3.0 in graduate study at UT by the completion of 15 semester hours or may be subject to dismissal. In the past, candidates with undergraduate GPAs less than 3.0 have not been competitive unless they have demonstrated academic achievement through the completion of a relevant graduate level degree program or completion of substantial upper level science courses with a B or better.
>An applicant who has any prerequisite courses to complete at the time of application may be admitted under Conditional Status, with a clear understanding that remaining prerequisites must be satisfactorily completed (grade of B- or higher) by June 15 for enrollment into the program. Official transcripts or other appropriate documentation will be required.

NOTE: Government subsidized financial aid is not available to students admitted under Conditional Status.
