Please click on each question heading below to learn more about the Boston University Physician Assistant curriculum.

We accept Advanced Placement (AP) credit for General Biology only.

In rare circumstances, on a case-by-case basis, we may approve advanced standing for certain course work.

The rotations have been chosen to represent practice as a PA in a variety of settings, specialties and geographic locations.  Most rotations are within a 50-mile radius of downtown Boston. We expect each BU graduate will have experience caring for a diverse patient population as well.  You will need a car both to travel to sites that are not reachable by public transportation and for safe commuting when you are on call or working odd hours.
