Pre-physician Assistant

Our pre-physician assistant program at Gordon College will prepare you for the next step in your educational journey: PA school. As a pre-physician assistant major, you'll build a strong foundation in biology, chemistry, and human anatomy. As a physician assistant, 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.
