Thank you for taking your time to explore the Augusta University PA program website and whether we may be the right fit for your educational goals.  If you are an applicant, make sure you take advantage of the Special Events: Transfer Visit Days offered by the Admissions Office. There you will learn more about the curriculum, our students and faculty.  If you are a physician assistant alumnus from our program, please visit our Facebook page MCG/GHSU/GRU/AU Physician Assistant Program Graduates for job opportunities and to connect with other graduates, faculty, and staff. If you are a health professional who would like to get involved in our teaching program or in our community service activities please let us know how you would like to volunteer your time and talents.

On a personal note, I am a 1998 graduate of the Augusta University Physician Assistant Program.  I have served as the Associate Director of Admissions for five years and as the Director of Admissions for the last ten years.  I have been the Department Chair since June 2021.  I take great pride in being a part of the leadership of the College of Allied Health Sciences.  I work with an outstanding group of PA educators that are dedicated and committed to excellence. Our graduating classes consistently perform above the national average on the PANCE board scores and the Class of 2021 had a 100% PANCE national board exam pass rate.

Our program is offered on the Augusta campus during the didactic phase and we offer clinical rotations for the second year of training across Georgia and the Southeast and we are expanding these opportunities daily. The Augusta University PA program has been in existence since 1972.  We are the only publicly funded physician assistant program in the state of Georgia. We embrace our statewide mission in meeting the healthcare needs of Georgia's citizens.

Employers and preceptors rate our graduates with nearly 100% satisfaction rating. Our faculty have worked hard to build a unique graduate curriculum that will develop excellent clinicians, educators and leaders of the future. I look forward to your application.

Warmest regards,

Lisa Daitch, MPAS, PA-C
