The MSU PA program’s diversity work has been recognized by the Physician Assistant Education Association (PAEA) as one of fifty-four PA programs, out of 267 programs nationally, selected to participate in a research study titled: What’s Working? A National Assessment of Best Practices in Diversifying the Physician Assistant Workforce. The MSU PA Program was chosen for “being a leader in consistently graduating racially and/or ethnically diverse students in your US Census division.” PAEA is looking to “identify Physician Assistant (PA) programs that have successfully contributed to a diverse workforce in the various parts of the United States. The project will identify the strategies that lead PA programs to succeed in creating a diverse workforce. Finally, the project will use the data obtained to create a best practice resource to inform the PA community.”
