About the PA Program

Mission Statement

Bethel University’s mission is to create opportunities for members of the learning community to develop in a Christian environment to their highest intellectual, spiritual, and social potential. This includes synchronous and asynchronous modes of education. 

The mission of the Bethel University College of Health Sciences is to create learning opportunities in a Christian environment that strengthen the individual who desires a career in healthcare to develop to his or her highest potential. Highest potential is defined as providing health care services to the patient communities served, which is of the highest quality, evidence based, and delivered in a safe manner while exemplifying Christian values.

The Physician Assistant Program’s mission is to create opportunities for the members of the learning community interested in healthcare to ultimately graduate as exceptional and compassionate healthcare professionals who practice medicine within an ethical framework grounded in Christian principles.
