Doctor of Medical Science Programs
The 50-credit hour Doctor of Medical Science (DMS) degree program is a fully online post-professional program that serves PAs who are interested in building on their education with more in-depth medical knowledge, as well as those who wish to develop leadership skills and business acumen to advance within their workplace.
Two, 12-credit hour Graduate Certificates—Healthcare Practice and Administration and Physician Assistant (PA) Educator—are geared toward those interested in obtaining administrative and/or educator roles and may already have a doctoral degree or are not interested in obtaining one at this time.
The 14-credit hour Bridge Program is designed exclusively for PA’s who have graduated within the past 6 months from an ARCPA accredited, entry-level program, and are interested in expanding their clinical knowledge and leadership skills on their path to the Doctor of Medical Science degree.
The Butler Doctor of Medical Science programs are accredited by the Higher Learning Commission.
