MILWAUKEE — Marquette on Wednesday, May 9, will officially break ground for its new Physician Assistant program facility, which the university announced in March. The ceremony will take place at the project site at 11 a.m.
Media who wish to attend should RSVP to Chris Stolarski, senior communication strategist, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Additional renderings of the facility are now available; contact Stolarski.
The 44,000-square-foot, $18.5 million building at the northwest corner of West Clybourn Street and North 17th Street, is being constructed to help Marquette's nationally ranked, in-demand program grow to help meet provider shortages in primary care delivery.
Demand for enrollment in Marquette's PA program has grown, putting it in a unique position to address provider shortages. The program received nearly 1,400 applications for the available seats in the current cycle, and interest continues to grow by approximately 10 percent per year.
The program is ranked No. 40 in the nation by U.S. News and World Report and boasts a 100-percent pass rate on national board exams for the past nine consecutive years, as well as a 100-percent job placement rate for graduates within six months of completion.
