Applications Now Being Accepted for Physician Assistant Studies ProgramAugust 4, 2015
Georgia Campus - Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine is pleased to announce
that the Central Application Service for Physician Assistants (CASPA) is accepting
applications for the new Master of Science in Physician Assistant Studies program
slated to begin on campus in June 2016. If distance campus approval is obtained, 20
students will be admitted to the program.
CASPA allows applicants to apply to “developing” physician assistant (PA) programs.
The Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine Physician Assistant Studies program
has applied for approval to locate a distant campus at Georgia Campus for their accredited
program, but has not yet received full approval. If applicants choose to apply to
the Georgia program, they must understand that the distant campus program may be denied
approval after the review process is completed and that there are no refunds (application
fee, enrollment deposit or tuition) should the program fail to gain approval. A final
decision from the Accreditation Review Commission on Education for the Physician Assistant
is expected by October 2015.
A Georgia Campus open house for all programs, including osteopathic medicine, pharmacy,
biomedical sciences and physician assistant studies, will be held Friday, Oct. 2 from
5:30 – 8 p.m. Faculty, staff and students will welcome prospective students.
