Advisors: Deborah G. Duke, Ed.D., Justin Bland, Ph.D.

The majority of physician assistant programs award a master's degree, although there are still certificate and bachelor's degree programs. About three-fourths of all students entering a physician assistant program have already completed a bachelor's degree. No particular major is required, but a strong science background is desirable and certain prerequisite courses must be completed. Although the courses listed below are a good basis for many physician assistant programs, students should research the schools to which they intend to apply to be sure they complete all requirements. The Physician Assistant Education Association maintains a Web site at which includes links to all accredited physician assistant programs. Prephysician assistant students are encouraged to work closely with the prephysician assistant advisor as they plan their coursework and related activities in preparation for professional school.

Harding University's Physician Assistant Program is a master's-level program and requires a bachelor's degree for admission. Additional information regarding Harding's program can be found at
