Expand Your PA Impact: earn your PA/M.P.H. In Just 2 Years

Earning your M.M.S./M.P.H. degrees from NSU enhances your effectiveness as a PA clinician, while also opening the door to non-clinical career pursuits.

Students would be eligible to apply after completing the 1st semester of the PA program, and in good academic standing. 

Enhance your Practice Expertise

Your PA/M.P.H. augments your medical PA skills with public health insights and deeper analytical skills that improve your patient care; interdisciplinary team collaboration; and effectiveness in communicating with and influencing facility and public agency leadership.

Pursue Non-Clinical Roles

Many PAs leverage M.P.H. expertise to pursue non-clinical roles and bigger initiatives: assessing and developing public health, disease-prevention or education programs; advocating for and supporting underserved populations; conducting research; teaching; and leading hospital or clinic teams as administrators and senior executives.
