Why Jefferson

Philadelphia’s rich culture of medical education coupled with Jefferson’s long-established history of educating outstanding healthcare providers makes Thomas Jefferson University an ideal location for a PA program.

 JSHP’s focus on interprofessional collaboration and curriculum innovation ensure that students are prepared to be successful clinicians who can influence healthcare and impact public health. As part of an academic health center, students have opportunities to learn side-by-side with medical, nursing and other healthcare students. One example is participation in the Health Mentors Program which teams students with patients who have chronic health problems for a two-year relationship.
