Pre-Physician Assistant

PA Post Baccalaureate Program

The 10-month Physician Assistant (PA) Post Baccalaureate Program is focused on preparing students with a science background for PA school. Pre-PA students’ progress through the Fall and Spring semesters as a cohort enrolled in classes, including many that are customized for pre-health professional students, together. Our program will provide students with the academic preparation needed to enter PA school.

As part of the program PA students have an Advisor to assist with:

  • PA school application process
  • CV prep and personal statement development
  • Mock interviews
  • GRE prep
  • Tutoring

Please join us as a member of a small cohort of like-minded individuals prepared for the rigor of a full-time program. Admission is on a rolling basis so we advise you to apply early.
