Service to others
The School of Medicine’s Physician Assistant Program stays true to the values of Creighton’s founders, with an education rooted in lifelong learning, reflection and continually improving how we take care of patients.
Only the fifth program of its kind offered at Jesuit institutions nationwide, the 28-month master’s-level curriculum is led by a team of talented faculty with a long history of leadership in the PA profession at the local, state and national levels.
Students experience an interprofessional program designed to form competent and compassionate health care providers at the top of their field.
The program selects students who have demonstrated a commitment to service to others. Your scholarship support will allow Creighton to draw top candidates with a capacity to thrive — in this profession and the health care community at large.
It all starts with scholarships.
When you support scholarships, you help our students manage costs and alleviate debt load. But more than that, you give them a transformative sense of belonging, purpose and personal growth.
You help us form a new generation of Creighton professionals ready to shape the future of health care.

The future of care
Creighton’s School of Medicine stands at a significant moment. We’re looking back on more than 125 years of health care education but also looking ahead to the rapidly shifting landscape of our profession.
We are ready to meet the moment. Through our clinical partnerships in Omaha and Phoenix, we are preparing some of the most clinic-ready physicians in the country to help meet a growing need for health care professionals.
As we build upon our expertise in medical education and research, our guiding Jesuit values will continue to show us the way forward — developing women and men of competence and compassion, doing all things for the greater glory of God.

Innovating Health Care
For Creighton, collaborative care operates on a few core principles: Health care is a team effort; and clinicians working together (closely, honestly, efficiently) leads to better patient care — lowering costs, improving outcomes, saving lives.Read the story
