Physician Assistant


The Physician Assistant Program at RIT is a highly competitive program. The number of openings for all students is limited by accreditation standards. The PA Program requires a personal interview prior to admission to the program. Interviews are by invitation only and not all applicants are interviewed. Not all applicants who are invited to interview are accepted into the program. The interview performance is viewed as one of the most important aspects of your application to the PA Program. Careful attention is given to ranking and interviewing freshman and transfer applicants in comparison to their peers. In addition, the PA Program strongly encourages applicants to have participated in some degree of patient care experience and/or shadowing of physician assistants.

There are approximately 30-40 students enrolled in each class year of the program. Therefore, the number of openings for all students is limited and competitive. All prospective applicants must have a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0 (on a 4.0 scale) to qualify for admission and must maintain a minimum GPA of 3.0 once enrolled in the program.

Information on applying on-line can be found at the RIT Office of Admissions website.
