FAYETTEVILLE — Methodist University’s Physician Assistant Program has entered into an articulation agreement with The University of North Carolina at Pembroke designed to strengthen the program’s goal of encouraging diversity in the health professions programs.
“This agreement that promotes American Indians to pursue a PA degree couldn’t come at a better time for UNC Pembroke and Robeson County,” said UNCP Chancellor Robin Gary Cummings. “Partnering with Methodist is an innovative approach to addressing longstanding health-care challenges in Southeastern North Carolina by educating more in-demand providers. This highly competitive program will create an important pathway for our students to make a difference right here at home.”
