White Coat Ceremony Class of 2021

The mission of Yale PA Online is to prepare PAs to provide compassionate, high-quality, patient-centered care as members of interdisciplinary teams in a primary care setting. Graduates will be culturally competent clinicians who are committed to continuous learning and professional development. Our graduates will make significant contributions to their communities and to the advancement of the PA profession.

Yale's PA Online program awards a Master of Medical Science (M.M.Sc.) and prepares graduates to seek licensure as physician assistants. The curriculum blends online classes with in-person learning experiences, with students required to complete clinical placements and attend three immersions on Yale's campus.
