Physician assistants (PAs) work as part of a healthcare team under the supervision of a physician to provide healthcare services to patients. Physician assistants are commonly seen in primary care positions aiding physicians by documenting a patient’s medical history, performing physical exams, ordering and interpreting lab tests, diagnosing and treating common illnesses, and assisting in medical procedures.
The Ball State physician assistant program is combined with a major like biology or chemistry to prepare you for entry into a master’s PA program after graduation. Because specific requirements vary among PA programs, your departmental advisor will work with you throughout your studies to make sure you are ready to apply.
We have a dedicated support team in Biology including academic advisors with educational backgrounds in biological sciences and a faculty advisor with a PhD. They will assist you with the application timeline, setting benchmarks, and finding shadowing and volunteer opportunities. Feel free to contact one of the advisors
