Healthcare Experience

While there is no prerequisite for health care experience, successful applicants must demonstrate an understanding of the PA profession and its contribution to the delivery of health care in the United States. We do not have an admission requirement related to a particular number of hours spent with patients. For students applying to the program with previous healthcare experience, one type of experience is not considered to be valued more highly than another.

The Admissions Committee expects that candidates display their commitment to helping others and their suitability for a profession that cares for sick and injured patients.
