A Tradition of Excellence

The University of Iowa's PA Program is unlike any other PA program in the country. Our unique program curriculum is purposefully designed to have the PA students complete their didactic curriculum with medical students. The innovative curriculum is intricately woven into a creative matrix of courses that prepares students to move far beyond simple memorization of facts and figures to developing skills designed to prepare them as lifelong learners.

These skills produce a clinician who can adapt to new theories and technologies as they become available. Students in our program become clinicians who know how to develop questions, collect and critique information, and critically reason conclusions using evidence-based medicine principles. Clinicians who possess these skills are capable of providing excellent patient care.
