This article describes the learner-centered syllabus as a strategy to support learning in physician assistant education. The learner-centered syllabus represents a significant point of interaction between instructor and students. If thoughtfully prepared, the syllabus demonstrates the important components of the student's needs and interests, the instructor's beliefs and assumptions about the nature of learning and education, and the instructor's values and interests concerning course content and structure. The author concludes that this strategy would be appropriate for all types of learners; however, a precondition for this is a commitment by instructors to learner-centered philosophies.
