In this program, pre-PA students attend classes that are primarily post-bacc exclusive as a cohort to maximize their learning experiences. These classes are taught by faculty from the College of Science and Technology and the Temple University Lewis Katz School of Medicine. In addition, pre-PA will receive standardized test preparation in the spring. Our program will provide students with the academic preparation needed to enter PA school.
