OnlineMasters.com, a trusted source for unbiased college rankings and higher education planning, has announced the release of the best online physician assistant programs in the United States. The top-ranked programs were selected based on curriculum, program flexibility, affordability, and graduate outcomes.
The research organization analyzed graduate schools across the country with only the top 10 making it to the final 2019 list. In addition to interviews and surveys from current students and alumni, they also leveraged insight gained from human resource professionals. The methodology incorporates the most recent data from the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS) and statistical data from the National Center for Education Statistics. Most importantly, only programs from accredited nonprofit institutions were eligible.
“Our research shows physician assistants are one of the most sought-after healthcare providers. As the physician shortage worsens, this demand is only predicted to grow in order to meet patient needs” stated Barbara Montgomery, Program Recognition Manager. “According to Public Health Reports, the profession is predicted to grow by 72 percent by 2025.” This is just one of the many reasons OnlineMasters.com researched, analyzed, and ranked the top Physician Assistant Programs.
