  • Overview

    Anita Glicken, professor of pediatrics and section head of the Child Health Associate/Physician Assistant program at University of Colorado at Denver Health Sciences Center, discusses the scope and admission requirements of this unique physician assistant program. Ms. Glicken explains how the program was started over 30 years ago, long before most physician assistant programs, and prepares its graduates through innovative curriculum to provide comprehensive medical care for people of all ages, emphasizing the care of infants, children, and adolescents. The program is different than most physician assistant programs in that it is a three-year master's level education program and graduates receive specialized training in pediatrics and psychology. Tune in to hear how this unique program is attempting to address the shortages of health care professionals in rural areas and primary care/pediatric practices.
