Physician Assistant Program - Ft. Lauderdale

Dual Admission Program

Physician Assistant Preferred Dual-Admission Program with Nova Southeastern University’s undergraduate Student Success Unit

Nova Southeastern University's College of Health Care Sciences has established an articulation agreement with the NSU Student Success Unit within Enrollment Management and Student Affairs (EMSA), for a select number of highly motivated, qualified students interested in pursuing professional studies in the Physician Assistant Program. Candidates must maintain a 3.2 grade point average throughout their undergraduate years, achieve acceptable scores on the Graduate Record Examination (GRE), and successfully complete all specified prerequisite coursework for the Physician Assistant (PA) program.  

The students will apply for admission to the PA program via CASPA. The CASPA application and GRE scores must be received by NSU's Office of Admissions by the established deadlines. Personal interviews are offered to the most qualified applicants to assess interpersonal and communications skills, maturity, altruistic attitude and commitment to the PA profession. There is no guarantee of automatic admission to the PA program, as the final determination of admission is at the discretion of the College of Health Care Sciences. Students will be awarded a Master of Medical Science in Physician Assistant degree (M.M.S.)upon completion of the PA program.
