Physician assistants practice healthcare on teams under the supervision of a doctor. They practice and prescribe medication, help carry out treatment plans, help counsel patients on healthcare courses of action, and suture wounds. Students prepare for this degree by majoring in biology, molecular biology, or biochemistry at Westminster College. After earning their B.S. degree from Westminster, students then pursue an advanced degree to become a physician assistant. Graduate programs Westminster students have been accepted to include Duquesne University, Chatham University, Lincoln Memorial University, Temple University, and Saint Francis University (PA).
