Jan. 7, 2001 (Lexington, Ky.) -- Faculty and staff of the University of Kentucky physician assistant studies program celebrated the beginning of training of their newest class of students as well as presented second-year students a white coat as they embark upon the
start of their clinical experiences.

On Sunday, Jan. 6, in Memorial Hall, the newest PA class met current students during the program’s convocation and white coat ceremony. Along with receiving their white coat, the 55 PA students took the physician assistant oath.

The PA program, which is the only program of its kind in Kentucky, is a division of the UK College of Allied Health Professions. It converted to a master’s level program in February 2001 after being a bachelor’s program for more than two decades. This year’s class
includes graduates of 13 Kentucky colleges and universities. Each January, 55 students are enrolled in the 100-credit-hour, 30-month program.
