Physician Assistant Program Mission Statement

The mission of the Daemen University Physician Assistant Department is to provide its graduates with the knowledge and skills necessary to meet the challenges of delivering quality medical care with great autonomy in a team-based model to a diverse patient population within a complex American healthcare system.  Its professional program builds upon and reinforces the intellectual qualities acquired through study of the liberal arts, social, and natural science while integrating the Competencies of the Physician Assistant Profession throughout the curriculum.  

Daemen University's Physician Assistant Program encourages and welcomes future health care providers who bring their individual and unique life experiences, which reflect the differences in our communities, united as a collective cohort with a focus on providing compassionate, empathetic patient-centered care regardless of a person’s prior background and/or experiences.
