Physician Assistant Program
Additionally, students may join the local chapter of the Student Academy of the American Academy of Physician Assistants (SAAAPA) known as the Saint Louis University PA Society (SLUPAS).
The mission of Saint Louis University is the pursuit of truth for the greater glory of God and for the service of humanity. Because of this mandate, service is an integral part of the SLU PA program. In the words of University President Lawrence Biondi, SJ, "The service thrust is not merely about volunteerism. It is about engagement with those who are marginalized or experiencing injustice."
SLU PA students are involved in a wide variety of service activities as they work toward accumulating at least 12 hours of community service during their first year. Projects include Open Doors Event and SLU's Campus Kitchen.
