Physician Assistant Program
Preparing exceptional, practice-ready clinicians.
Butler’s Physician Assistant program prepares students to become outstanding clinicians fully prepared to deliver quality health care in an ever-changing environment.
Creating future PA leaders.
Butler University houses the oldest PA (Physician Assistant) program in the state of Indiana. Our 24-month curriculum will prepare you to take the national certification exam, apply for state licensure, and provide patient care in various medical or surgical practice settings. We are in the heart of Indianapolis and partner with all the major healthcare systems in the state, as well as, many outside of Indiana, to offer students outstanding clinical experiences.
Butler’s PA program has been accredited longer than any other PA program in Indiana. We have been graduating in-demand PAs since 1996.
Accelerate Your Career
Our 24-month PA program is three months shorter than at most other institutions, allowing you to begin your career sooner.
Learn from Experienced Practitioners
Butler’s PA program boasts experienced faculty from diverse medical specialties. Many serve on national or state organizational boards or continue to practice, guaranteeing that their teaching reflects current medical practice.
Hands-On, Realistic Learning
Our students benefit from an application-focused curriculum. They work with patients in their first semester using state-of-the-art equipment including anatomage tables, ultrasound systems, and skills labs, ensuring realistic learning that translates to grads who are more than ready to enter the workforce.
