Master's Medical Science Option

Miami Dade College Physician Assistant Program has partnered with St. Francis University through an affiliation agreement, to offer Miami Dade College’s PA program students the opportunity to obtain a Master’s Degree while completing the PA program coursework.

The MMS program is an online 33 credit program which accepts transfer credits from the PA program clinical rotations. The online courses are typically completed during the clinical year of PA studies. As designed, the students can also complete the MMS program shortly after the completion of the MDC PA program.

The MMS option is only available to those students who possess a bachelor’s degree prior to matriculating in the MDC PA program or who after completing the MDC PA program proceed to complete the BAS in Health Science with an option in Physician Assistant studies.
