PA Goals

PA Degree Goals

In addition to its mission, values, and goals, the NGU PA Medicine Program has established graduate goals/benchmarks. Following graduation of the inaugural cohort and annually thereafter, inclusive of each additional subsequent graduating class, alumni will be surveyed to determine the programs goal attainment. NGU will continue gathering benchmark goal data for the most recent graduating class in mid 2021.
