Physician Assistant (PA)

Physician Assistant (PA)

There are nine Physician Assistant Programs in North Carolina; all are Masters level.

All of the programs require on-going, hands-on health care experience with direct patient contact – e.g., EMT or paramedic training, health educator, RN, patient care attendant or nurse’s aide, clinic assistant, or other health care experience – technologist, therapist, clinical research assistant and many prefer that this be paid rather than volunteer experience).

Since some of these programs change their prerequisite course requirements, application dates, etc. without notifying us, all students interested in applying are STRONGLY URGED TO CONTACT THE PROGRAMS of interest to be sure all of the requirements for admission are being met.
