pre reqs


Recommended Posts

All schools require A&P I and 2 w/lab, and microbiology w/lab. From there schools have varying requirements, ranging from 2 semesters of biology w/lab, organic chemistry w/lab, nutrition, biochemistry, etc. You want to go above and beyond that the pre-reqs are in order to make yourself more competitive. I definitely would advise you check the schools you are interested in, make sure you do all the pre-reqs they require, and then do some more.

General Science Pre Reqs:

-1 semester ochem/lab

-2 semesters gen chem/lab

-2 semesters bio/lab

-2 semesters a&p/ab

-1 semester mirco/ab

 

It's worth keeping in mind that more and more schools are requiring biochemistry and strongly suggest courses like immunology, genetics, pathophysio, etc.

I'm doing EXACTLy what @UgoLong and @bstone said above.  

 

I went onto this website: http://directory.paeaonline.org, narrowed my list to the schools I was interested in (which in my case were schools that offered what I was looking for, and locations my husband could find work in).  I then visited each and every website for the schools I was interested in (which were over 30!), made an excel spreadsheet of what those schools were looking for in a COMPETITIVE (different from potential) PA student (pre-requisite coursework, GPAs, GRE score, and health care experience hours).  Based on my excel spreadsheet, I was able to  create a tentative school schedule for myself to see how long it would take me to be ready to apply.
