The pre-physician assistant program comprises a core of courses required for admission to physician assistant programs. Your choice of the pre-physician assistant program of study at UNCG indicates your interest in preparing for a career as a physician assistant. The physician assistant pre-professional program is not a major in which a degree can be earned but rather a program of study intended to be complementary to a chosen major. Because the required courses can be incorporated into many majors at UNCG, students should consider a major they find interesting and feel they will do well in academically and then declare pre-physician assistant as a second major at UNCG.
