Interpersonal Skills

Compassionate health care is a basic tenet of the PA profession. The program values the applicant's ability to work skillfully, thoughtfully, responsibly and constructively with people. Individuals who demonstrate flexibility and the ability to adapt to new situations are well suited to become physician assistants.

The Admissions Committee also assesses applicants on their commitment to a PA career and their awareness of the PA role as a member of the healthcare team.
