Foundational education to pursue graduate physician assistant training
Pre-health areas are not majors, so you won't receive a degree in pre-physician assistant. You can choose any USD major with required prerequisite coursework in preparation for applying to a graduate physician assistant program. Most programs require a bachelor's degree, preferred GPA and coursework in:
- Organic chemistry
USD and other graduate programs consider academic performance, character, motivation, professionalism and knowledge of the profession for entry into the program.
