Contact the Physician Assistant Graduate Program

Thank you for your interest in the Graduate Professional Physician Assistant Program. 

Before contacting us, please be sure to visit our FAQ section where you can find many answers to commonly asked questions.  Due to the high number of calls and emails we receive, please allow at least two business days to get back to you.

At certain times during the application cycle, we will be unable to provide any specific status updates. We are also not able to counsel applicants one-on-one or discuss specific aspects of their application while the screening process is ongoing.

Because of the large number of applications received each cycle, at no time are we able to accept additional letters of recommendation, transcripts, or patient contact hours to update applications.  Only materials that we receive through CASPA and have been verified are used in the screening process.

If you need any further information, please contact out Admission Coordinator directly.

Accreditation Provisional Statement

The ARC-PA has granted Accreditation-Provisional status to the Graduate Professional Physician Assistant Program sponsored by University of the Sciences.  

Accreditation-Provisional is an accreditation status granted when the plans and resource allocation, if fully implemented as planned, of a proposed program that has not yet enrolled students appear to demonstrate the program’s ability to meet the ARC-PA Standards or when a program holding Accreditation-Provisional status appears to demonstrate continued progress in complying with the Standards as it prepares for the graduation of the first class (cohort) of students.

Accreditation-Provisional does not ensure any subsequent accreditation status. It is limited to no more than five years from matriculation of the first class.
