PA continue to have 100% pass rate for PANCE
The next time you're treated by a Marquette physician assistant, know that you're in the hands of one of the nation's best. Out of more than 180 programs, the Marquette PAs continue to have a 100% first time pass rate on the National PANCE exam. The Physician Assistant National Certifying Exam assesses medical and surgical knowledge and is required to become a certified PA.
“We are extremely proud of the students’ performance,” says Mary Jo Wiemiller, chair of the Department of Physician Assistant Studies. “The intense program demands time and dedication to learn both in the classroom and in the clinical setting."
Marquette's PA training program is in high demand. Application submissions have increased again this year. The program continues to offer a postgraduate fellowship in emergency medicine, which is one of only a handful of its kind in the United States. The program is also starting its third year partnering with the federal VA system, the Zablocki VA Medical Center in Milwaukee, to offer a post-graduate program in primary care for veterans.
