Admissions: Programs of Study

Pre-Physician Assistant

The Pre-Professional Physician Assistant Program is designed to provide students with liberal arts and with science courses needed in order to apply to the professional phase of the program (the graduate PA program). Admission to the Pre-PA program is selective, as students must maintain high standards required for admittance to the professional phase. All Pre-PA students must apply and pass admission standards in order to enter the professional phase of the program. Students academic progress is closely monitored by the PA Program staff. The PA Program also provides a 'Mentor Program' which allows for the opportunity to shadow a practicing PA in the local medical community.
