Northwest University Launches Two Cutting-Edge Programs in Health Care Education

Northwest University will be offering the Master of Science in Physician Assistant Studies and the Doctor of Physical Therapy programs beginning this fall.
KIRKLAND, Wash. — Northwest University has announced it is launching two new programs aimed at shaping the future of health care education: the Master of Science in Physician Assistant Studies and the Doctor of Physical Therapy.

These new programs are designed to equip graduates with the knowledge, skills, and hands-on experience necessary to thrive in today's dynamic health care landscape.

The Master of Science in Physician Assistant Studies program prepares students to become competent and compassionate physician assistants capable of delivering high-quality health care across various clinical settings. Through a comprehensive curriculum led by experienced faculty members and enhanced by state-of-the-art facilities, students will gain a deep understanding of medical principles, patient care techniques, and ethical considerations. The program will launch in August 2024 and will admit a cohort of 40 students each year.

The Doctor of Physical Therapy program is designed to train the next generation of physical therapists to provide evidence-based care and innovative rehabilitation services. With a unique hybrid blend of learning, clinical education, and small class sizes, students will engage in rigorous coursework, clinical rotations, and research opportunities aimed at fostering excellence in patient care. By integrating theoretical knowledge with practical experience, graduates of this program will be poised to address the evolving health care needs of diverse populations. The program will launch in fall 2024 and will accept 48 students each year.

"At Northwest University, we are dedicated to preparing students to lead and serve with integrity in their professions,” state Joseph Castleberry, president of Northwest University. “The launch of these two programs underscores our commitment to excellence in health care education and our mission to equip graduates to make a positive impact, not only in our local community, but around the world."
