No, however, the more clinical experience the better. Preference is given to those with health care experience and have demonstrated a commitment to working in rural medically underserved communities (i.e. currently work, reside, volunteer or raised in such an area) 13. Question: If the applicant has extensive health care experience (i.e. International Medical Graduate, Nursing, Pharmacy, Physical Therapy) is there a mechanism that they can challenge the curriculum for advanced placement in the PA program? Answer: No, the PA program does not offer advanced placement for experiential learning. Applicants selected into the PA program must complete the entire 24 month full time curriculum. The program does not allow testing out or challenging PA courses taken at other institutions.
