The PA Educator Certificate is tailored to those individuals who would like to enhance their understanding of teaching and medical education for PAs. The first three modules of the PA Educator Certificate are modeled after components found within Accreditation Review Commission on Education for the Physician Assistant Standards (section A-C). The final module focuses on innovation in PA programs. All modules are 3 credit hours for a total of 12 hours.
Applicants to the PA Educator Certificate program must have successfully graduated from a PA program accredited by the Accreditation Review Commission on the Education of a Physician Assistant. If you are not a Physician Assistant you may be eligible to apply if you are an educator in a PA program or within a healthcare profession. If you don’t meet either of those expectations, you must have permission from the program director to apply.
Currently enrolled Butler DMS students may also expand upon their degree concentration to include information offered within these courses and obtain a supplemental certificate. The PA Educator Certificate includes four, three-credit modules for a total of 12 hours, which can be completed in just two semesters.
