High Point University’s newest graduate school program, Physician Assistant Studies, enrolled its first class of 20 students on Sunday, June 7. The program doesn’t yet have a permanent home, but gave white coats to the incoming students at a special ceremony. More than 800 applicants applied for this master’s degree program. High Point is the ninth North Carolina college to offer a physician assistant degree. Two others are in the works, including one at UNC-Chapel Hill.
