College of Medicine Physician Assistant Program Partners for Early AcceptanceJuly 6, 2020 |
by Penn State
HERSHEY, Pa. — Penn State College of Medicine is creating a new partnership with Lincoln University in Pennsylvania and Hampton University in Virginia that provides their undergraduate students early acceptance into its physician assistant program.
Students at the two universities can apply early ― during their junior year in undergraduate studies ― to the physician assistant program. They will not need to go through the national application process, which can be both expensive and cause extra barriers for some students.
