Program Competencies

The Wingate PA Program competencies represent the medical knowledge, skills, clinical reasoning and problem-solving abilities, and professional behaviors each student must satisfactorily demonstrate in order to graduate from the Wingate PA Program.  The framework of these competencies was informed by the updated Competencies for the PA Profession, the PAEA Core Competencies for New PA Graduates and guided by the mission and values of the Wingate PA Program. The PA Program tracks student progress in acquiring sixteen program competencies that ensure that students are developing the knowledge, skills, and attitudes important to PA practice.  The Wingate PA Program Competencies are organized into 8 core domains outlined below.
