REXBURG, Idaho — Brigham Young University-Idaho is partnering with Salus University to offer students both a bachelor's degree in health science and a master's degree in physician assistant studies as part of a new five-year program.

Students will complete their health science degree in three years at BYU-Idaho and move to Elkins Park, Pa., for an additional two-year graduate school. As part of the agreement Salus University will automatically guarantee admission to at least four BYU-Idaho students every year.
