The physician assistant program is offered by the affiliated college or university providing the degree program. The program director of each college or university's physician assistant program determines and develops the coursework and laboratory experiences for the program and makes arrangements for clinical rotations.

Rotations at Mayo Clinic sites are available in specialty areas only.

Grading or evaluation

Evaluation of student performance in each rotation includes the preceptor's evaluation of clinical performance. A Mayo-provided electronic evaluation tool will be implemented in this process. Once complete, the evaluation results will be shared with the student's respective school program.

Curriculum enhancements

Mayo Clinic School of Health Sciences is committed to developing and maintaining the best education programs. The curriculum and other aspects of this program are assessed continually and changed as necessary to ensure the highest quality training.
