UNMC offers a program of study that leads to the Master of Physician Assistant Studies (MPAS) degree. The equivalent program will be offered on two campuses, UNMC in Omaha, and the University of Nebraska Kearney. The instruction will be shared so that students have comparable learning experiences while being able to reside at either location.
