Physician Assistant

Students interested in being physician assistants or in other health science careers (medicine, dentistry, optometry, podiatry, physical therapy, veterinary medicine, and others) can effectively work toward their goals at Westminster College.

In completing a B.S. from Westminster that includes the recommended courses listed below, students will satisfy the requirements for admission to most physician assistant programs in the United States. This option allows students to spend four years at Westminster and then to apply to programs at a number of different universities.
