IMPORTANT: These courses are intended to help you finish your pre-requisites for CU-Denver’s Pre-Child Health/Physician Assistant program. This is NOT considered a major or a minor at UCCS. UCCS does not offer a CHA/PA program. However, if you are planning to apply to the CHA/PA program at CU Denver, UCCS offers a pre-professional program to assist you in preparation for the CHA/PA program.
The CHA/PA Program is a three-year, highly academic program modeled after medical school. The CHA/PA Program is a Physician Assistant Program that offers a pediatric focus and awards a Master’s of Physician Assistant Studies upon completion. Although the emphasis is on preparing a generalist physician assistant with special expertise in pediatrics, the curriculum provides the new graduate with the fundamental knowledge and skills necessary to function in a variety of roles within numerous clinical disciplines.
Information about the CHA/PA program may be obtained from the website: http://www.ucdenver.edu/academics/colleges/medicalschool/education/degree_programs/PAProgram/program/Pages/Mission.aspx
For more information on the pre-professional program, contact your advisor.
