Program Goals

The Wingate University program is an accredited program. Our faculty strives to meet and surpass these goals:

  • Provide comprehensive didactic instruction aligned with the NCCPA blueprint for each semester.
  • Train clinically competent physician assistants.
  • Support a culture of learning and sharing information gained through practice among clinical year students.
  • Maintain first-time PANCE pass rates at or above the national average.

Real-time Learning at Two Locations

The Wingate University Physician Assistant Studies Program¬†admits one class each year, beginning in late August. Forty students are admitted to the Wingate campus and 10 to the Hendersonville campus. The programs use synchronous distance learning, wherein faculty interact in real time with students, regardless of which Wingate University location they’re attending. Every student can engage with other students at both locations during class.
