NS, Dal collaborate to develop physician assistant training program


The Government of Nova Scotia has announced that it is collaborating with Dalhousie University to establish a physician assistant training program. CBC reports that Dal’s physician assistant program could have up to 24 seats and would be a two-year master’s level program. Gregory Ells, a senior executive director with the province’s Advanced Education Department, said that plans are in their early stages but that the hope is that the program can be put in place for the 2023-24 academic year.
