Physician Assistants (PA) are members of the fastest growing health profession. PAs are academically and clinically prepared to work closely with a supervising physician to provide many of the same services. Most PA programs require the completion of a BA/BS degree before entry into their professional program. A few require several years of experience in a health-care field. The BA/BS degree can be in any field in which the student will excel. There are several foundational courses in the natural sciences that are required as a part of prerequisite coursework.
Admission to most PA programs requires that applicants take the Graduate Record Exam (GRE). This exam covers verbal, analytical, and writing skills in a variety of disciplinary areas.
