A page within Physician Assistant Studies

Welcome Back!

Welcome to the UWL PA Program's Alumni page! Whether you are an alumnus, a current student, a future student, or just curious about our program; we are glad you found this page!

The program first matriculated students in 1995. Since that time we have graduated over 500 physician assistants. The majority of our graduates find jobs across the regions served by our partners. Graduates also find successful career opportunities across the country. 

If you are an alumnus, we would love to hear from you. Below you can find links to update us. Feel free to share your current location, practice, and any other information you would like us to know about you!

If you are a recent graduate and in need of documentation of education or a letter of reference, you will find links for these items below. 

Stay in touch! Update your contact and practice information. You may be chosen for our Alumni Spotlight!
