Greetings from Hershey, PA and to all those who have gotten a jump start on the CASPA cycle for 2018-2019.
As the Director of Admissions for the program, I'll be on this thread as much as possible to help answer any questions about the 18-19 cycle or share program updates, as I'm sure some of our alum and current students will also join when they are able.
May is a busy time of year in the program as the 2nd year students graduate, our rising students begin clinical rotations and our incoming class begins...Yes, this all happens in a one week time span in May. We are very proud of our soon-to-be-graduates, excited for the students beginning their clinical rotations, and look forward to welcoming the new students at orientation.
I will do everything I can to provide a detailed and clear understanding of our application process by way of this thread, online information sessions, and email correspondence.
Good luck with your CASPA and Penn State secondary applications.
Director of Admissions
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!
Caryn Stopper, M.Ed. Director of Admissions
