You’ll work on a team with a doctor to examine, diagnose, treat and counsel patients; order and read tests; perform procedures; and even assist in surgery. Physician assistants can practice and prescribe medications in all 50 states, but require far less schooling than medical doctors. They practice in virtually every medical field and are employed in a wide variety of health care settings.
Study and research in the on-campus donor (cadaver) lab, a rare opportunity for undergraduates.
Pursue an internship at the on-campus Center for Balance, Mobility and Wellness.
Gain real clinical experiences through Gordon’s internship program at Duke University and the Gordon Medical Observership program.
NOTE: Significant accumulation (1000 hours) of patient contact hours is a prerequisite for many but not all schools. See specific course requirements for individual schools. Additional biology courses may be required depending on the school.
