PA Admissions

Admission to the Wake Forest School of Medicine Physician Assistant Program is very competitive. Each applicant is evaluated on his/her individual merits. Decisions are based on a combination of strength of academic record, performance on the GRE, personal references, written personal statement, a personal on-campus interview, previous health care experience, and a variety of non-cognitive traits.

Prospective applicants should review the information in this section carefully to learn about requirements for admission, the application process, and the open house sessions. Before contacting the PA program with questions, please also read the frequently asked questions page to see if your questions are answered there.

The Wake Forest School of Medicine PA Program is committed to diversity in its admissions process. Diversity as a core value embodies inclusiveness, mutual respect, and multiple perspectives and serves as a catalyst for change resulting in health equity. In this context, we are mindful of all aspects of human differences such as socioeconomic status, race, ethnicity, language, nationality, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, geography, disability and age.
