The College expects to welcome its first cohort of students in the fall of 2021

North Central College is launching a Master of Physician Assistant Studies (MSPAS) Program and expects to welcome its first cohort of students in the fall of 2021. The program, which will be housed within the College’s School of Education and Health Sciences, aims to address the current shortage in the nation’s physician workforce—an issue that has been recently exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The new master’s degree program was featured in Inside Higher EdDaily Herald and Positively Naperville.

“North Central College is a cornerstone institution in Naperville and we look forward to our graduates becoming the next generation of healthcare providers right here in our own backyard and beyond,” said North Central College President Troy D. Hammond. “The College is well positioned to serve the community in this way, especially given our location in an area known for its excellent healthcare services, facilities and organizations.”
