Student Wellness Resources

Student Wellness Resources

The CSUSB MSPA (Master of Science in Physician Assistant) program and CSUSB take a holistic approach to student well-being, which promotes wellness in all its forms. Our collective belief is that the entire campus and the local community benefit when every student feels part of the community and desires to be engaged in whatever capacity is fulfilling to that individual. The CSUSB MSPA Program and the University have people, programs, and processes dedicated to ensuring students have the support needed to foster an environment of well-being. 

San Bernardino County is a culturally rich, diverse area 20 miles from the Arrowhead mountains, 51 miles from the beach communities, eighty-six miles from Coachella, and sixty miles from Palm Springs. These areas increase opportunities for promoting student well-being and an enriched cultural experience. 

In addition to a prime location, CSUSB offers a myriad of wellness activities on campus that support student wellness. MSPA Program students are provided with direct and timely access and/or referral to services addressing personal issues, which may impact their progress in the MSPA Program. Access to academic support and student services remain available to students throughout the clinical phase as well. Below is a list of university resources that may be accessed by CSUSB students, faculty, and staff.
