Tripp Umbach was retained by the University of Evansville (U of E) to evaluate the feasibility of developing a master’s level Physician Assistant (PA) program, specifically to be sufficient in research, data analysis and insight to allow the University of Evansville to make an informed decision to proceed with development of a Physician’s Assistant program.  

Tripp Umbach worked closely with the College of Education and Health Sciences at the University of Evansville to conduct a feasibility study for a physician’s assistant (PA) program in conjunction with a regional feasibility study for medical and health science education and program expansion in the greater Evansville, IN region.  

The feasibility report document was sufficient in research, data analysis, and insight to allow the University of Evansville to make an informed decision to potentially proceed with the development of a Physician’s Assistant program. Ultimately, the study assisted with determining the optimal site and size for medical education facilities that promoted the highest quality learning outcomes and economic impact for the region.
