USF students also achieved perfect exam pass rates in three other programs:

  • Radiologic Technology students earned 100 percent pass rate on the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists’ certification exam for the 20th consecutive year.
  • 100 percent of graduates in Master of Science in Physician Assistant Studies program passed the Physician Assistant National Certifying Exam on the first attempt for the sixth straight year
