Physician assistants (PAs) practice medicine with supervision of licensed physicians. They work wherever physicians or health care organizations employ them.
The Pre-physician assistant program prepares students for professional Physician Assistant school. PA schools do not require a specific major, but the program consists of a set of required prerequisites that can be combined with any major of the student's choice.
The Pre-Physician Assistant program offers several services in order to prepare students for the often rigorous journey in becoming a physician assistant, including advising, the opportunity to attend professional workshops, research opportunities and student organizations.
