Going Strong Since 1971
The Northeastern University Physician Assistant Program was first established in 1971 by Suzanne B. Greenberg. As the founding Program Director, Suzanne Greenberg was the first woman and non-physician to develop a physician assistant program.
The program was the first PA program in Massachusetts and the first to offer a generalist master’s degree. As global citizens, the Northeastern PA Program is dedicated to access, equity, and inclusion. The Northeastern PA Program is committed to developing future physician assistants who advance diversity by providing culturally informed care.
As we celebrate 50 years of the NUPA program we celebrate the accomplishment of our alumni and their contributions to the health and wellbeing of our communities. The Program and PA profession are rooted in service and increasing access to high quality healthcare.
Our alumni are outstanding healthcare providers, innovators, educators, and leaders, who are mentoring the next generation of PAs. We celebrate each of you!
