The Army offers well qualified officers, warrant officers, enlisted soldiers, and ROTC Cadets an incredible educational opportunity to become a Physician Assistant (PA) through the Interservice Physician Assistant Program (IPAP) located at the AMEDD Center & School, Fort Sam Houston, Texas. The Army trains approximately 150 soldiers a year alongside candidates from the Air Force, Navy, Coast Guard, U.S. Army Reserve, National Guard, and U.S. Public Health Service. Graduates earn a Masters degree from the University of Nebraska and receive a commission as a 1LT in the Army Medical Specialist Corps. Officer students receive constructive credit for their commissioned service IAW DODI 6000.13. Graduates must pass the Physician Assistant National Certifying Exam (PANCE) before they can provide world-class healthcare to our soldiers. Physician Assistants (PA) are important members of the AMEDD healthcare team and provide a broad range of medical services traditionally performed by physicians. They are the primary medical provider to soldiers in battalion and division level units and also provide garrison healthcare to soldiers, family members, and other eligible beneficiaries. The Army PA has served the nation in all conflicts and peacekeeping missions since the Vietnam War.
