Interservice Physician Assistant Program - Fort Sam Houston, Texas
This Section For Active Duty Military Students Only
In 1996 the University of Nebraska entered into an agreement with the Armed Force’s newly created Interservice Physician Assistant Program (IPAP) to provide administrative and faculty support services for the primary care physician assistant program operated by the U.S. Armed Forces. Students enrolled in the IPAP receive academic credit from the University of Nebraska for course work completed as part of the IPAP.
Beginning in January 2011, students in the IPAP will complete 16 months of didactic course work at the Army’s Academy of Health Sciences, located at Fort Sam Houston, Texas. This will be followed by 13 months of supervised clinical clerkships at military or affiliated medical facilities.
Faculty — The faculty of the IPAP are military or civilian personnel who qualify for volunteer faculty appointments in the Division of Physician Assistant Education, School of Allied Health Professions.
Admission Requirements — Students admitted to the IPAP are selected by the military selection board of their respective service. The IPAP students are then matriculated at the University of Nebraska provided they have previously earned 60 semester hours of transferable college credit.
Degree Requirements — Students enrolling from 1996 through 2002 in the Interservice PA Program received a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Nebraska upon completion of the prescribed IPAP course work. Effective January 2003, IPAP students receive a Bachelor of Science degree upon completing Phase I of their training, and receive a Master of Physician Assistant Studies degree upon completing their PA training.
