The Manitoba government reports that the vast majority of students graduating from Canada's first-ever physician-assistant master's training program have chosen to stay in the province. The government invested $1.2 million to establish the physician-assistant education program at the University of Manitoba in September 2008. Of the 23 students who have graduated since the program began, 19 are currently working in the province. Another 24 students are currently enrolled in the program. Manitoba News Release
