The School of Physician Assistant Studies is committed to accepting a diverse group of qualified individuals from a variety of backgrounds and experiences in accordance with MBKU’s nondiscrimination policy. Each application is reviewed and the merits are considered individually. Additional consideration is given to applicants with volunteer community service or military experience (verifiable by DD-214), or applicants in the Pre-Health Professions Linkage programs at Cal State Fullerton, Cal State Long Beach or Cal State Los Angeles.
We do not accept previous experience or medical training for advanced placement in the Master of Medical Science program. All students are expected to complete all didactic and clinical elements of the program. The School of Physician Assistant Studies does not permit students to matriculate on a part-time basis, nor does the curriculum lend itself to an accelerated learning schedule.
