Grants and Programs
There are many programs at the Primary Care Physician Assistant Program that are funded by grants and supported by scholarship. Students have the opportunity to benefit from this work and increase their skill set. Some of these programs include our USC PA Pipeline Program, the USC PeaCE grant and the Scholarship for Disadvantaged Students from HRSA. These all contribute to the success of Trojan PAs.
USC PA PipelineThe USC PA Pipeline Program is made up of four programs that focus on encouraging local youth and their families to seek higher education and careers in health care.
Scholarship for Disadvantaged StudentsThe Primary Care Physician Assistant Program at the Keck School of Medicine of USC has been awarded $3.25 million to support scholarships for disadvantaged students in a continuation of growing diversity within the physician assistant profession and bringing quality health care to underserved communities.
“The PA Program emphasizes the importance of preparing excellent primary care providers who can work in medically underserved communities,” said Chloe Powell, DMSc, MSPA, PA-C.
