Founded in 1891, Drexel is a small, private university in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania with a long history of utilizing cooperative education to allow for more practical experience. Taught through its College of Nursing and Health Professions, Drexel’s Master of Health Science - Physician Assistant was designed to “develop graduates who are competent, caring physician assistants, possessing the skills of life-long learning needed to incorporate new knowledge and methods into their practices and to adapt to a changing medical environment.” There’s also an exciting BS/MHS Bridge Program for Physician Assistant Option which allows students to complete studies a year earlier than average! Drexel is known for its vast online offerings, as well, so some undergrad courses may be completed remotely.
