Your career in medicine starts here.
Physician assistants are a vital part of health care teams and the medical community. They are the front line in providing primary care to patients in both hospitals and private practices, under the supervision of licensed physicians.
Why Touro? Why Manhattan?
Many of our students lead busy lives, and need a program that accommodates their needs and schedules. That’s why our Manhattan campus offers a non-traditional, intensive 32-month, 127-credit program that leads to both a bachelor of science in health sciences and a master of science in physician assistant studies. Courses are offered in the evenings and on Sundays.
Our professors support you every step of the way, in the classroom, in the clinical phase, and in your career planning. They’ll help you develop a broad base of knowledge in basic medical and behavioral sciences, clinical medicine, and research methodologies, and mentor you through your clinical rotations at our affiliate hospital, clinic, and private practice sites. Not many schools can promise this level of personal attention—because we are a small, private program, we are able to look out for each of our students and guide them toward success.
Students get great hands-on experience and have had rotations in transplant surgery at New York Presbyterian Columbia University Medical Center and emergency medicine at Medical Center of Galilee, among others. Our graduates have secured great positions in reputable hospitals like Memorial Sloan Kettering, staffed high-traffic emergency rooms and work with diverse patient populations. Whatever your passion and area of focus, we can help you make a career of it.
