Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: College of Letters, Arts & Sciences

IMPORTANT: UCCS does not have a physician assistant program. Pre-Child Health Associate/Physician Assistant Prep is not a major or minor but a listing of requisite courses and recommendations needed to be eligible for admission to the CU School of Medicine’s Physician Assistant program at the Anschutz Medical Campus in Aurora, CO.

A bachelor’s degree with a minimum of 120 credits from an accredited college or university is required to be completed prior to matriculation to the program.

Other schools may have different requirements.  Students should check admissions requirements for all schools to which they plan to apply. Completion of requisite coursework does not guarantee acceptance into any professional degree.

Application Information for the CU School of Medicine’s CHA/PA, including requirements for admissions, contact information, application materials, deadlines, and testing, can be found at: https://medschool.cuanschutz.edu/physician-assistant-program
