About the PA Program


 

What is the PA profession's outlook?

The United States Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that the  2014 median annual salary for Physician Assistants was $95,820 per year. The BLS projects that the number of PA jobs will increase by 30 percent between 2010 and 2020, much faster than the average for all occupations. The Master's of Physician Assistant Studies was ranked the No. 1 Best Master's Degree for jobs by Forbes.com in 2014.

Augusta University has a long tradition of PA education.
