This goal is achieved in the University of South Dakota PA program through a state-of the-art gross anatomy laboratory, clinical exam rooms, simulation center and study space. Similarly, very recent technology is deployed throughout the teaching facility classrooms and PA students have 24/7 access to the teaching facilities. Students and the program have access to the Parry Simulation Center located in the Wegner Health Science Center and its library in Sioux Falls. In addition, PA students have access to the university library and writing center, to name a few of these available resources. Finally, upon admission, each PA student is assigned an advisor to oversee the student's academic progress.
