Physician Assistant


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Departments

Northwestern’s pre-physician assistant program prepares students for entrance into a Physician Assistant (PA) professional program and an eventual career as a PA where they will practice medicine under the supervision of physicians and surgeons. Most students will attend Northwestern for four years, graduating with a B.A. degree before entering a 2-year PA professional program. It is important to know that PA programs typically require several hundred hours of experience in health care settings such as a CNA, EMT, paramedic, etc. before admittance to the graduate program.
