In 2009, the MEDEX Northwest Division of Physician Assistant Studies expanded its training opportunities! A satellite site was added in Anchorage, AK in collaboration with the University of Alaska, Anchorage. This training option will join the Tacoma satellite site as an undergraduate program leading to a bachelor's degree through UAA or UW.

The Bachelor of Science in Health Sciences Degree (BSHS), with a  Physician Assistant Track, provides a BS degree for students who have completed the required education and clinical experience to work as a physician assistant. 

The UAA BSHS Degree program consists of a minimum of two years of pre-major course work, and health care experience in addition to the MEDEX curriculum requirements. The MEDEX curriculum includes one year of clinical and didactic instruction at approved training sites, and a year of clinical and family practice clerkships. 

Typical PA applicants come from a diversity of health care backgrounds such as LPN, RN, Paramedic, Corpsman and Community Health Practitioners.
