PA Program Benefits
Dedicated Facility and Lab Space
All Monmouth University PA classes are held at the Graduate Center, located in Monmouth Park Corporate Center on Route 36 in West Long Branch, NJ—just two miles from the main Monmouth campus. The program utilizes two classrooms at the Graduate Center as well as two large clinical skills laboratories, and library space dedicated to the program. Those in the program are also welcome and encouraged to use any resources available on the main campus.
Great Location for Training
Because Monmouth is centrally located in New Jersey, Physician Assistant students have opportunities to train at various clinical sites throughout New Jersey and New York.
In Monmouth County alone, there are many renowned hospitals and medical facilities, including Monmouth Medical Center in Long Branch, Jersey Shore University Medical Center in Neptune, Riverview Medical Center in Red Bank, and CentraState Medical Center in Freehold.
Small Classes and Personalized Education
Because no more than 30 individuals are admitted to the PA program each year, class sizes are small, enabling students to work closely with each other and develop a strong rapport with faculty members. Students entering together will follow the same class schedule during their three years in the program.
Experienced Monmouth Faculty
Students in Monmouth’s PA program learn from faculty members who have extensive knowledge and experience as PAs and physicians. Additionally, the program’s co-medical directors are experienced in post-graduate medical education training.
The Monmouth University Physician Assistant Student Society (MUPASS) is a student society associated with the Student Academy of the American Academy of Physician Assistants. The society is one hundred percent directed by physician assistant (PA) students to benefit the PA students at Monmouth University, as well as any undergraduate students who are interested in the PA profession.
