Requirements for Physician Assistant Schools

Physician assistant schools have slightly different requirements from other health profession schools. All physician assistant schools require or strongly recommend the following courses:

Biology

Chemistry

*Note: At USF, BSC 2093 and BCH 3023 have prerequisites that are not always required by the physician assistant programs. See the course descriptions for more information.

In addition, Biology I and II (BSC 2010 and 2011) are also required by some physician assistant programs. Many schools require the second semester of organic chemistry, an additional upper-level course in biology, courses in psychology and/or sociology, public speaking (SPC 2600), at least one math course (MAC 1105 and STA 2023 are often recommended), and a course in medical terminology (CLT 3040 or HSC 4933). Students should always check with the schools they are interested in to ensure the completion of all requirements for those schools.
