Happenings at The School of Graduate Studies at the University of North Dakota

Finals Week & Graduation

leave a comment »

I honestly don’t know where this past academic year has gone as it seems like only yesterday we were welcoming a new group of graduate students at the Fall orientation. And this week, The Graduate School will say farewell to more than 330 Masters and Doctoral graduates who have successfully completed their advanced degree at the University of North Dakota.

One such group is the cohort of Physicians Assistant candidates who will have a hooding ceremony this weekend. Sixty students from 11 states will receive their degree. Here is a snapshot of the PA program’s graduating class of 2010:

Age Range: 24-59
Age Average: 38
Females: 29
Males: 31
Clinical Experience (average): 11 years

A demographic map of the graduating class shows the numbers of students from the 11 states represented (kindly created and provided by the program).

Here’s a link to their nice group photograph on the PA Web site. Part of the mission of the program is to support primary care physicians in rural health services and under-served populations, and we are being informed in The Graduate School of successful placements for students that is fulfilling that mission.

Congratulations to all students graduating. We wish you the best of luck and hope you will return to visit us at UND before too long.
