Physician Assistant Programs

Physician Assistants are one of the fastest growing and in demand professions, at the forefront of healthcare.

Touro’s School of Health Sciences has been there since the beginning, educating Physician Assistants since 1972. Our program has evolved alongside the healthcare field and we seek highly-motivated applicants with a strong science background and a commitment to helping individuals, serving communities, and contributing to a healthier society. Our programs will prepare you with the education and experience you need to be leaders in your field.


We offer three physician assistant programs. The BS/MS programs in Bay Shore/NUMC and Manhattan have separate ARC-PA accreditations, and different schedules. Bay Shore/NUMC is a traditional program with a more accelerated schedule – the program is completed in 28 months. The Manhattan program has a non-traditional schedule better suited for those with outside responsibilities and is completed in 32 months with a research component. The comparison table below lays it out. 

The Advanced Placement PA Master’s Completion is an independent study program for students who already have a bachelor’s in physician assistant and are looking to advance their career. Applicants must have graduated from an Accredited Physician Assistant program to be considered.
