Physician Assistant Program Info Sessions

None
5:30-7 p.m., Monday November 03

Oklahoma City University will hold a series of advising and information sessions for its new Physician Assistant program, which is expected to begin classes in January 2016. Sessions are from 5:30 to 7 p.m. on June 9, Aug. 11 and Nov. 3 on campus.

The PA program is only the second in the state and was created to address a critical need for more highly trained medical providers throughout Oklahoma. The U.S. Labor Department projects a 30 percent increase in employment for PAs over the next seven years, the highest average rate for all occupations. Approximately 90,000 PAs practice in the U.S., with 1,200 working PAs in Oklahoma.

The OCU program will focus on graduating PAs with a strong emphasis on providing primary care in community hospitals and clinics. Longtime medical educators Dan McNeill, Ph.D., PA-C, and Jerry Vannatta, M.D., are developing the program. Dr. McNeill has been named director and brings with him two decades of experience as former director of the PA program on the OU Health Sciences Center campus. Dr. Vannatta, former executive dean of the OU College of Medicine, will serve as OCU program medical director and will be instrumental in curricular design and clinical site development following his retirement from OU in June.

Spaces are limited for the advisement sessions. To reserve a space or for more information about the program visit the website atwww.okcu.edu/physician-assistant, or contact Heidi Puckett at HPuckett@okcu.edu or call (405) 208-5094.
