FPU graduates physician assistants

Franklin Pierce University President James Birge and Provost Kim Mooney presided at its Master of Physician Assistant Studies (MPAS) Program Completion Ceremony on March 1. Twenty-one students in the MPAS program in Lebanon received certificates of completion toward their diplomas awarding them a master’s degree of Physician Assistant Studies.

Part of the University’s College of Graduate & Professional Studies, the MPAS program trains upcoming physician assistants who work under the supervision of a physician as part of a team.

A physician assistant may perform physical examinations, diagnose and treat illnesses, prescribe medications, order and interpret lab tests, perform procedures, assist in surgery, and provide education and counseling to patients.
