Both academic work and hands-on patient care experience must be completed prior to applying to the program. Admissions requirements and procedures are reviewed and revised annually. Updates are generally made on our web page in mid-March. Please note that we are unable to pre-review transcripts before an individual actually applies to the program. It is the applicant’s responsibility to review the most current information prior to applying.
Individuals who hold a prior doctoral degree from an accredited US institution in a health or science field (MD, PhD, DrPH, DVM, ScD) may have individual prerequisite course requirements waived at the sole discretion of the Program Director.
PA shadowing is not a prerequisite. However, we highly recommend it in order to acquire a solid understanding of the PA role.
We can answer general questions about the program that are not addressed on our website. You can call us at 617.373.3195 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The GRE is not required for any PA pathway (MS, MS/MPH, MS/HI) options.
