USask to establish Physician Assistant program, expand clinical psychology program 


The University of Saskatchewan recently announced two changes to its programming to support the demand for health care professionals. The university will establish a Physician Assistant training program that will begin in Fall 2025. Graduates of the Physician Assistant Master’s program will know how to acquire patient histories, conduct exams, diagnose patients, and give treatment options as well as assist in other areas aligned with their supervising doctor’s scope. The two-year program will prepare students to meet the needs of the health-care system, with a focus on rural and remote areas. USask will also be expanding its clinical psychology program from 5 to 20 students in order to train more professionals who can diagnose and treat mental health disorders.
