PA Student Life

The PA school experience isn't just about what takes place in the classroom, lab, and library. While you earn your degree, you'll also have countless opportunities to pursue your favorite activities, discover new interests, refine your skills, and build lifelong friendships. To help you find your place at the Atkinson Physician Assistant Education Program, we offer thousands of ways to supplement your studies: student organizations, intramural sports, outdoor adventure and hiking, art walks, meditation by the sea, a vibrant local foodie scene, a myriad of festivals, and so much more.
