Indiana's first physician's assistant program was begun at the Fort Wayne campus in Fall 1972 when 12 students were enrolled. Dan Fox was the administrator of the program and Dr. Frederic Shoen, a Fort Wayne family practitioner was named physician-director of the Fort Wayne P.A. program. The program only lasted several years.
