Physician Assistant Program

Physician Assistants (PAs) are professional health care practitioners who expand quality and affordable care to diverse patient populations.

The CSU currently has one Master of Science Physician Assistant (MSPA) program at CSU Monterey Bay. The MSPA Program at CSUMB focuses on providing primary care to underserved patient populations, in keeping with the CSUMB Vision Statement. In this way, the MSPA program not only serves a critical regional educational need; it also strengthens the health of communities that future CSUMB-trained Physician Assistants serve.
