A.T. Still University (ATSU) of Health Sciences (ATSU)

A.T. Still University (ATSU) of Health Sciences (ATSU) is the founding institution of osteopathic healthcare, established in 1892 by Andrew Taylor Still, DO. ATSU serves as a learning-centered university dedicated to preparing highly competent professionals through innovative academic programs with a commitment to continue its osteopathic heritage and focus on whole person healthcare, scholarship, community health, interprofessional education, diversity, and underserved populations.

ATSU is comprised of three campuses (Mesa, Arizona; Santa Maria, California; and Kirksville, Missouri) on more than 200 acres with seven prestigious schools. Located in Mesa, Arizona, ATSU’s Arizona School of Health Sciences’ (ATSU-ASHS)  mission is to graduate health professionals highly skilled in evidence based practice who are committed to reducing health disparities for individuals and communities. 

Arizona Western College graduates who meet minimum prerequisites and are endorsed by the College automatically qualify for an interview with ATSU-ASHS’ Master of Science in Physician Assistant Studies program, which provides a learning-centered education that develops exemplary physician assistants who deliver whole person healthcare with an emphasis on underserved populations.

The residential, entry-level physician assistant master’s program prepares students to serve their community as primary care providers through on-campus and clinical training throughout the 26-month program. The department educates physician assistants with a philosophy that patients come first, instilling in students the concept of addressing the entire patient through the body, mind, and spirit. This philosophy has at its core, the tenet that healing is more than treatment of a medical diagnosis. Our practitioners recognize the interconnection of the body (physical nature), mind (psychological and emotional), and spirit (spiritual and/or religious). ATSU graduates address the whole patient through competent medical treatments, application of educational and preventative strategies, psychological support, and value of the individual's spiritual beliefs.
