Some of the most important people in a medical facility are those assisting the primary doctor. The pre-physician assistant curriculum at UND prepares you for the rigors of physician assistant graduate school, and allows you to explore medicine before fully committing to the program. Help patients, doctors, nurses and others by becoming a physician assistant!
As you prepare to assist in major surgeries, perform post-operative care and conduct other procedures and health processes, you’ll learn the power of medicine and the impact of caring for a community. Some courses you’ll take to prepare for physician assistant school are:
- Cell Biology
- Developmental Psychology
- Abnormal Psychology
To get involved on campus and expand your horizons is a staple of college life at UND. Try something you’ve never done before, or find a group on campus to make friends and gain skills you can apply to your career.
UND supports the Undergraduate Medical Association (UMA) that brings together medical students from all areas to discuss the professions and the medical field in general. Physician assistant schools require that you obtain thousands of hours of firsthand exposure to the profession, so getting an internship at a local healthcare facility is encouraged.
By completing the preparation for physician assistant schooling, you’re one step closer to a rewarding and lucrative career as a physician assistant. Physician assistants work everywhere, from remote rural settings to major urban centers, in doctors' offices, hospitals, clinics, the armed forces and other federal government agencies.
