Physician Assistant Program

Director’s Message

Program Director

Joseph Zaweski, MPAS, PA-C

I am very pleased to serve as assistant dean and program director for the 5-Year Physician Assistant Program in the College of Nursing and Health Professions. I look forward to building the PA program. Valparaiso University has a strong tradition of excellence in health professions, and the PA program complements the current degree programs and fits well with the mission and vision of the University.

We have a good foundation to build upon both academically and literally. Space has been renovated to provide PA students with separate classrooms, distant learning capacity, conference rooms, study rooms, a student lounge, and a state-of- the-art simulation center.

Earning an undergraduate degree in health sciences and moving into the master’s PA program has many advantages. Making the choice of where to pursue higher education is a big one, and we are here to help you along the way.
