Greetings from Hershey, PA and thank you to all the applicants who already have their CASPA applications underway for our May 2018 start! I wanted to get the 2017-2018 cycle up and running for the program. As the Director of Admissions, I will be on here regularly enough, along with alumni and current students, to help field any questions and keep you informed about the admissions cycle at Penn State College of Medicine. We enroll 30 students each May into our 24-month master's program. The program is housed at the College of Medicine in Hershey, PA. We do not offer our program at any other campus or via an online option. Registration will be open online shortly for two upcoming Online Information Sessions at http://med.psu.edu/physician-assistant/recruitment-events - Learn about our program from any location, online and easy! I hope you will join me on one of these dates. I look forward to another exciting admissions cycle! Happy Applying! Caryn Stopper, M.Ed. Director of Admissions Penn State PA Program

Took 5 months off to bike across Africa - personally fulfilling, but demonstrative of slight lack of career commitment? Failed a 4-credit Australian Ecology course while studying abroad sophomore year - irrelevant? Still maybe a year out from applying. In general, do I have a chance?
Any Pre-PA Student's from PSU on here? Are you happy with the support/resources provided by the Pre-Health society? Would you like to be a part of a Society that caters to the needs of Pre-PA's only? i.e. shadowing partnerships, community service, and teaching the public about the PA profession. I am forming a Pre-PA Society at PSU, and would like your input and support. Let me know what you think! Thank you!
